“I was lucky enough to have Matt assigned to my client service design project. He helped me with several waves of usability testing and a number of Design Thinking and business requirement workshops. Matt demonstrated superb insight throughout, facilitated colleague and client facing session with professionalism, and delivered high quality reports and client-centric recommendations. He has been pivotal in shaping my thinking and I hope to have the opportunity to work with him again in the future.”

“Matt has been an inspirational part of the Kinneir Dufort project team engaged by The Coca-Cola Company. He has consistently turned around very high calibre work with a very fluid brief as part of our development cycle. Matt has also added value laterally by exploring and suggesting alternative strategies and technologies to help commercialise elements of the project. He has taken some of the tight timelines with great humour and is a fun, creative and enthusiastic person to be around.”

“I worked with Matt at DNV GL and was impressed with his high level of professionalism, depth of knowledge and expertise in evidence based UX design for both web based and virtual reality applications. He is also extremely diligent and hard working.
As well as the killer combination of Design Thinking and digital user experience, Matt is an effective and fair manager who gets the best out of people working for him. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt.”

“Matt is a dedicated, detail oriented designer you can count on for a very thorough investigation into whatever challenge put in front of him. He has a particular strength in hand sketching and visualization, but I would call him an excellent all round designer. Over the years, I've watched him get good results in variety of projects, from strategy for global blue chips, field design research, consumer electronics, packaging, medical, military, software, and manufacturing design challenges. He's a flexible, solid designer and I would recommend him as a good addition to any team.”
Innovation and Design Consultant, Créa Inc.
“Being able to empathise with the end user as well as juggling the demands and needs of clients and project team members is a key characteristic of a top-quality designer. Matt ticks all of those boxes, plus those entitled 'creative talent', 'enthusiasm' and 'rigour'.
Matt managed the first project I brought in to KD for a new client in an area very close to me, and despite the constraints placed upon the project was able to deliver high quality output, in-depth - including going the extra mile to rally understand the human element - and on time and budget.
He is an extremely capable designer / project manager and can be trusted implicitly to deliver. He is also a jolly decent bloke to work with!”
