INFORMATION
Over 15 years of experience as a multidisciplinary designer and creative director has led Mathew from the advertising weirdos at Wieden+Kennedy to the digital brand and experience innovation company Instrument. In 2009, rolling in the waves of the recession, he co-founded the Official Mfg Co in Portland, Oregon with Fritz Mesenbrink and Jeremy Pelley.

Lured south by the California sun, Mathew started Radical Co-op, a commercial art & design studio, in Chinatown with designer Neil Hubert in July 2015. Working with clients across the American west, he concepted and developed ground-up brand identities for emerging businesses, and applied his distinctive ethos to long-standing brands.

At the outset of 2020, just as the "novel coronavirus" was becoming a thing, he and his family relocated to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to lead the global brand marketing team at Harley-Davidson as Creative Director. Through the onset of the pandemic and a new CEO, he helped the brand launch their product online for the first time ever, including breaking into a competitor/conquest category and turning a revolutionary EV motorcycle into a standalone brand.
