A MESSAGE FROM MATT WATSON:
I gravitate towards understated yet confident aesthetics that let customers focus on what matters. I love simple, clean design. Business and design are my lifelong passions. I thrive on competition.
As a designer, I earned his stripes working for Lippincott, a global leader in brand design based in NYC, before moving back to Oregon. There, I spent over ten years at Nike as a designer in several key business categories. The last position he occupied was senior member of Nike’s creative team, where I helped evolve NIKEiD. Today, I own and run a well known creative agency on the west coast. We’ve worked with numerous professional sports teams, athletes, local businesses and well known non-profits. From Nike to the NY Yankees. From the Oregon Zoo to the Autism Society of America. From Oregon Wine to Kaiser Permanente.
I’d like to share some of my learnings and insights I’ve gained over the years. From landing a job for one of the most respected brand design firms in the world in New York. To navigation and climbing the ladder at Nike for over a decade. To stumbling as I started my own business from scratch. Hard work and a shit ton of luck.
