I’m Matt Jackson, a Graphic Designer with over 21 years of industry experience. I also happen to be the founder, designer, and creative mind behind matjac design, an independent graphic design, and branding studio in Newcastle, Australia.
My specialty is creative logo design and branding, but I also have extensive experience in all areas of graphic design, particularly print design. I have worked as lead designer and studio manager for large print companies where I gained valuable design and print knowledge. During this time, I have also provided graphic design services for a range of clients, both nationally and internationally, with a strong focus on logo design and brand identity.
Those who know me well would generally describe me as being very approachable and having an easy-going nature. On the flip side, I am a perfectionist. It’s somewhat of an annoying trait at times, however, being overly thorough on design projects does resonate well with my clients. My strong attention to detail is evident in just about anything I seek to take on, whether it is design-related or not. I am competitive, and I love a new challenge.
Away from graphic design, I am a husband and also a devoted father to an extremely active little man who keeps me on my toes. I grew up in the Hunter Valley, moving to Newcastle in 1999. I love the outdoors and I am an avid mountain bike rider on weekends. Above everything, I love spending quality time with my family. This normally consists of good coffee, cafés, and spending time in the sun watching my son chase Seagulls around Newcastle’s gorgeous beaches and harbour.
Interested in hiring me for upcoming freelance work, whether it’s for a one-off project or ongoing work?
