MATT TOUCHARD
Creative Director | Designer | Writer | Illustrator
Image Consultant | Telly Awards® Silver Council Judges Panel | WGA, west

Born and raised in south Louisiana, Matt Touchard is an internationally-recognized, creative designer. Matt studied at the prestigious Université Paul Valéry in Montpellier, France and in Switzerland before starting his firm (Zermatt) in 1990.

Matt has received numerous international awards and accolades. He has been honored at the CLIOs, the Grand Reggie Award (for the nation’s best advertising design promotion of the year; 1993) and is the recipient of over 100 other design awards (TELLY, GDUSA, ADDY, Lucie, Davey, ADDA, SIDC, AEDC, etc). Matt has won (47) 'Best in Category' Awards at the American Graphic Design Awards. Touchard was named one of the "Top Creative People/Designers to Watch" for North America by Graphic Design: USA Magazine (New York) and was featured as one of the "People to Watch" by New Orleans Magazine (New Orleans, Louisiana).

Known for attention-getting, risk-taking strategies and tactics, (sometimes irreverent, satirical and strikingly bold) his work has been in the spotlight for years– producing top-of-mind solutions and results for a client roster that spans international boundaries – Pat Benatar, Cirque du Soleil, LipoLift/LPG Switzerland, ESP Guitars, Piccard Swiss Vineyards, Sweet, Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson; Jeff Beck), Scandinavia, Delacombaz Switzerland, Hangface / K-Ent. Norway, EMI, Bel Chiasso Los Angeles, Barq’s Root Beer, Smoothie King, Greff Motors, SC Johnson, Lindsey Ferrari and others.

Matt Touchard is in final production with his first book about the "passion and devotion" to the guitar. He has conducted 45 face-to-face interviews with some of the world's best guitarists. Matt was invited to interview the legendary Les Paul at the venerable Iridium Jazz Club in NYC. Mr. Paul has written the Foreword to the book; Brian May of Queen contributed the Epilogue. Read Less
