Matt graduated in 2000 from Central Saint Martins and straight away began producing visual design work for Alexander McQueen and Warp Records. This then led to founding his digital design studio, subsequently creating award-winning products for companies such as PlayStation, Channel4 and Samsung. Matt had always loved gaming, and as his business grew he found himself drawn to projects that would edge him closer to the games industry. In 2013, Matt and two friends took the plunge and founded their London-based games studio Glitchers.
After their first release (Chippy) and following up with an arcade colour-matching game that was a big hit in Asia (Kano), Matt then began working on a gaming project designed to tackle dementia - one of the world’s largest health problems. This led to Sea Hero Quest - the world’s first game where anyone can help scientists fight dementia. The mobile adventure game was created in partnership with a team of research scientists, doctors and consultants designed to capture data to help advance the understanding of the loss of spatial navigation, one of the first symptoms of dementia. The game has been downloaded over two million times and has so far contributed 10,000 years worth of traditional dementia research.
Matt salutes the amazing opportunity mobile gaming offers, saying “if you have an idea, a computer and a good bunch of mates, you can make big things happen.”
