Matt Broughton Design

I'm a freelance graphic artist, illustrator and textile designer based in Melbourne, Australia. I work for a wide variety clients both locally and internationally. Sometimes it's hard to pigeon hole people, and I think I'm no exception. Over the years I've worked on everything from corporate branding through to illustration and art commissions. With over 20 years experience as both an in-house designer and an independent freelancer, I've collaborated on and led design initiatives for a diverse range of clients in: education, clothing, fashion, retail, publishing and the arts. Aside form my design work, I'm a practicing artist and printmaker. My artwork has been published in books as well as in private collections within Australia and Internationally. I’m available for commissions, contracts and design challenges of any shape or form.
