This was the BIMM London Graduation Vinyl featuring students who graduated in 2018. The inside sleeve included pictures of all the students.

All of the white print on the front cover was overplayed with a spot UV. I also created a CD version.

The 2019 Creation Fest Programme detailing everything that takes place at the weeklong festival in Cornwall.

Merch & Web Design

Using Shopify as the CMS, I designed and developed the Ghost Club Co website. The website is fully optimised and mobile ready.

Working with a variety of collaborators, I also designed and modelled the SS20 Collection. Check it all out here:

Here is just a sample of some of the logos I have worked on and developed over the years. Everything from Function Bands to Youth Charities, Churches and Coffee Companies.

Although what is displayed here is in Black and White, many of these have colour variations. A test of a good logo is how well it translates both in colour and in Black and White.





Patties Podcast was launched in September 2020 off the back of the UK’s first lockdown. The Podcast is presented by Pattie Boyd as. she reveals some of her favourite recipes throughout lockdown. 

The podcast can be found on Spotify and Apple Podcasts. I also built the website for the Podcast. For this I used WordPress and a theme. Check it out here: 

The logo and composition for Andy Elmes 2020 title; ‘Soul Winner’ was an awesome project to work on.

You don’t always get to see the final result of your work and its always special when you do. The book can be purchased from Amazon.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the creativity, planning, and delivery of projects with Matt Russell. Matt has the rare ability to scope a project start to finish, deliver the assets, work on a deadline, and always keep a good sense of humour. His work has consistently exceeded our expectation and we have kept an intentional development of projects for the past 3 years. I recommend his work and even more, his character. I’m happy to be contacted personally for further references.
As a singer/songwriter, I was really in need of a lyric video designer that would understand and enhance the message behind my songs. Matt delivered to the highest level by implementing his own creativity to design and develop the full project from start to finish. I would recommend Matt to anyone in need of a reliable and honest  creative. A privilege to work with and the final product exceeded my expectations.
