Associate Creative Director /  Art

Some work & personal features.

Hi, I'm Matthew.
I'm a 31-year-old South African working in Los Angeles.
I am an integrated creative that has worked at Ogilvy&Mather, TBWA/Chiat/Day and the independent RPA. 

My work spans across multiple multinational accounts, including Volkswagen, Audi, Honda, Nissan, Mondelez International, SAB MILLER, Coca-Cola Company, Kraft, GoPro, W.W.F., Castrol, Cape Town Tourism, The Times and many more.

I began my career at one of South Africa’s most prestigious advertising agencies, Ogilvy Cape Town. Shortly after arriving, my work was featured both locally and internationally. I have been recognized at the industry’s major award shows, including The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, The One Show Awards, D&AD and The Clios. 

In 2014, after winning the Loeries Young Creative Award (recognizing South Africa's best advertising creative younger than 27), I was approached to work in the US on Honda. Within 6 months of being in the country I landed a top 10 Super Bowl commercial for the brand.

Outside of advertising, one of my many interests include music. Alongside my previous band, I became one of the first Africans to successfully achieve a Kickstarter campaign. As a result, we recorded an album with producer and guitarist Dave Catching (Eagles of Death Metal and Queens of the Stone Age) at the legendary recording studio, Rancho De La Luna.

I am fascinated with all things creative, particularly those that speak to progress and the common good.
