About us

The cleverest of all, in my opinion, is the man who calls himself a fool at least once a month.

Matter Digital is a brand building design and development agency; we sculpt identities. We try enable our clients to surprise and entertain their customers with novel, out of the box thinking, and we're not afraid to get it wrong and try again. We like to work locally, understanding customer contexts, so that our clients know that they are engaging their audience in their own language. We seek out the minutea and try to make that beautiful too, in its own way. To us, development is not a separate sphere to design; both require the same keen eye, attention to detail and creativity to amaze. We build full solutions for all sizes of project, from logos and brand identities to web and mobile applications backed by robust servers and latest techniques. If you are interested in getting in touch about an idea you have, please contact us.

Development

The formula 'Two and two make five' is not without its attractions.

We are web, mobile application and OS X programmers specialising in Ruby on Rails (server), PostgreSQL (database), React Native (mobile), ES6 (javascript) and the front-end stack (web). We work with clients to conceptualise, strategise and spec out projects as well as creating bespoke user interfaces, experiences and online brand identities. Building robust RESTful APIs forms a rock-solid foundation that can be accessed from any platform, giving great flexibility and scalability; highly intuitive and creative cross-platform as-native mobile solutions and latest web technologies then build the bridge between service and user. We are logical, creative, passionate and exceptionally hard working — always striving to go beyond the expected, thinking outside the box to realise a potential via the best route, not just any route.

Design

There is no subject so old that something new cannot be said about it.

Design starts with research, and we bring years of experience in scientific academic research and project development leadership to each new task. We love the contemporary and the clean, but only when its mixed with the striking. To create a true brand identity people must remember it, and to do that they must engage with it. If nothing else, our designs hope to speak to their audiences; but we are never happier than when the audience gives an unexpected reply. Always learning and trying to stay fresh, constantly reading and exposing ourselves to as many great influences as we can. Design is an inexact science, but when form follows function, and does it well, beautiful things can happen. If you are interested in getting in touch about an idea you have, please contact us.

Clients

We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken.

As a young company, forged from old relationships, we thought we'd also share with you the clients that we've worked with in the past and have helped us get here.
