Matthew Broughton
Freelance Designer, Graphic Artist and Illustrator

Hi, I'm Matthew. I'm a freelance designer and illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia. I'm versatile, easy-going, creative and I know how to meet deadlines. I work for a wide variety clients both locally and internationally - kind of like your own personal off-site art department, but without the dramas.
Sometimes it's hard to pigeon hole people, and I think I'm no exception. 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, business and the arts.
I'm originally from Geelong and studied fine arts and design at the Gordon Institute and then the University of Ballarat. I lived in Ballarat for a number of years while working as a freelancer and also as an in-house designer before moving to Melbourne in 2005.
As side from my design work, I'm a practicing visual artist and I have artwork in private collections within Australia and internationally.
When I'm not designing I unwind with making music and playing bass for a local Melbourne trio the Gravy Tram, plus I enjoy; bike riding, road trips, listening to podcasts, vintage shops and being a dad.
