My name is Matt Pealing and I am a graphic designer based in Leeds.

Some of my friends know me as Maff or Pealo. I hardly ever mention this in person because it means I have to spell them out for people.

I’ve worked on a wide range of design projects over the years – everything from brand identities for fashion designers to illustration for festivals. I am often sub-contracted by design agencies too.

I have my own network of freelancers, ranging from copywriters to web developers. Which means I can take on a wide array of projects while you get all of the cost and skill advantages of a freelancer.

I start every project by researching my client’s business, before arranging my research into notes & moodboards and then sketching out lots of ideas before jumping on the computer. It gives you a chance to watch it develop and give your feedback, so we create something you really love.
