Designer / Director



I’m Matt Whitewood, a Design Director originally from Nottingham, UK. I develop design, direction and animation for advertising and film.

Currently based in New York City, USA.

My skill set covers a range of disciplines from treatments, concept development, design, art direction, through to the full execution of animation, lighting, texturing and rendering. I lead projects on a design and technical level; I have a background working in VFX and live action.


During the past nine years I have worked in some of the industry’s most prestigious studios including Superheroes in Amsterdam, The Mill in London and New York, ManvsMachine in London and Los Angeles.


The adaptability of my work has allowed me to work with some of the largest and creative brands in the world, including Nike, Apple, Google, Playstation, Burberry, Mercedes, D&AD, MTV, ITV, and the BBC.
