Matt Innes


Wellington, New Zealand
I've been lucky enough to work for some pretty well recognised Design agencies in both New Zealand and Australia. This allowed me to work with some great clients, creating opportunities to influence some fantastic projects.

I've been involved in two crowdfunding campaigns, one incredibly successful and one not so much. I've designed an award winning app that allowed me to work with Inland Revenue NZ and I've consulted for one of the largest not-for-profit organisations in Australia. Needless to say I've learnt a lot and love continuing to do so.

The best part however has been the privilege of working with some incredibly talented people. I love working with great people, to create great work that produces beyond great results.
