Design Your Life podcast Episode 013 with Vince Frost in conversation with graphic design icon, Matt Willey.
In 2014 Matt was named 'Designer of the Year' by Creative Review, and was elected as a member of the Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI) in 2015. After many roles working as a graphic designer across a number of international magazines, at times alongside Vince Frost, he has gone from founding his own graphic agency, Studio 8 in London, to now where he has spent the last five years in New York as the current Art Director for the New York Times.
In this episode, Matt shares how he essentially “fell-in” to his career as a designer, his wellness tactic of “feeling uncomfortable” to get out of his introverted shell, and the major turning point of his life after being clinically diagnosed as deaf at a young age, and how not being able to hear enough actually helped him hear more.
Stay tuned for Episode 014 featuring Design Director for Condé Nast’s flagship title, Vanity Fair, Chris Dixon.
