Matt Brown

Traction searched worldwide for the very best systems designer on the planet. We believe we’ve found him in Matt.

Matt has over 15 years experience as an Executive Creative Director and Chief Design Officer working with teams across product, tech, editorial, brand, media and commercial creating and delivering iconic end-to-end experiences for leading brands and startups such as CNN, Verizon, The Times, WarnerMedia, News Corp, Reuters and American Express. Most recently Matt has been working in web3 designing and building de-centralised finance and data products. He won Gold at the Drum Online Media Awards and has also been an Emmy, Eppy, Lovie & Graphis award winner.

When he is not bringing his design aesthetic to world-class brands, you can find him driving his two precious girls around the streets of Cambridge.
