INSPIRATIONAL graphic designer has honed the talent he developed at St Helens College to make his mark worldwide.
Matt Frodsham was welcomed back to the College where he delivered a workshop session for current students leaving a lasting impression.
He graduated from the College in 2009 after studying Foundation Degree Graphic Design. After a further year studying at Salford University he began working with Berlin-based Zeitguised, with whom he had built a relationship with during his studies at St Helens.
Now his creativity can be seen on screen following his work with leading household names such as MTV, Chanel and French bank, Banque Populaire.
After creating a buzz with his online presence Matt has secured work around the world producing innovative adverts, music videos and album artwork.
The 27 year-old motion graphic designer said: “I gained fundamental design knowledge at St Helens College. I think it’s essential for any budding designer to get an education, which will not only help them get the essential skills required to make it within the industry but to build contacts and experience along the way. The college certainly contributed in getting me where I am today.”
Paul Allen, curriculum leader for graphic design at St Helens College, said: “ I was delighted when Matt accepted my offer of delivering a workshop for current students at the college. The workshop has inspired and motivated the students. I wish Matt the best of luck for the future – he’s a true inspiration.”
Matt is now looking forward to settling back in the UK to establish a business, producing high end and stylish 3D artwork.
