Hello…

My name is Matt and I’ve been designing websites and printed material for a little over ten years.

Lately I’ve been yearning to spend less time in front of the computer, and get out with my camera and explore the beautiful Devon countryside (and beyond) a lot more.

And so this website is based around that – charting my journey away from the desk and into the wider world.
(I am still doing select web/print design projects though – so Reach out if you’re looking for help)

Have a browse of what I’ve been up to lately – you’ll find some featured post’s about recent work, news, gear, trips and forthcoming plans below. Plus all news and work post’s – along with some extra stuff about ‘bucket list’ trips and adventures – in the News & Stuff page…

Every so often I am either commissioned, or am inspired to produce a set of images that are an in depth study of a specific subject matter. To showcase some of this work I have now created a Featured Projects page. You can visit these select galleries via the link in the text above – or via the main menu at the top.

Ok, so my Instagram can be a little ‘eclectic’ – but you’ll find quite a few work related images in amongst the iPhone snaps…
