Matt Comboy

I am a broad-thinking, passionate Creative Director; motivated by the big idea whilst always being realistic to the client’s needs. I strongly believe in the power of original strategic beginnings, beautiful thinking, beautiful execution and getting beautiful results for my clients.

I have been in the design industry for over 23 years, working on both corporate and FMCG identities as well as innovation and strategy. I lead teams of designers and enjoy directing both identity and integrated projects. Crucially, for me, it should begin with what a brand stands for and what it wants to stand for - it’s about relevance and difference.
