A Little About Me
Hi I'm Matt Osborne and I'm a graphic designer, illustrator & web developer based in Manchester. I've decided to put my designs on here as a way of sharing my work with the world.
I've always been interested in design. As far back as I can remember I was forever sketching and crafting as a kid. Upon my teenage years, I took this a step further by self-teaching myself in the ways of graphic design. This was shortly followed by creating my first website aged 13 (many years ago!). Ever since then I've never looked back and I've since embarked on a career that excites me, with over 12 years of professional experience.
In my day to day work, I manage the online design team at Express Gifts in Accrington. My team and I create various web pages, graphics & marketing emails to send out to our large customer base, as well as many other roles that I won't bore you with right now! In my spare time I prefer to embark more down the illustration route. The result of which is the very site you're on!
Outside the world of design, I'm an avid football fan. I'm a season ticket holder at Accrington Stanley and a Travel Club member of the England football team - supporting them home and away when possible. I also enjoy cricket, supporting Church & Oswaldtwistle CC, Lancashire & England. Other interests to me would be films, games & music. All of which inspire many of my designs.
From the 2015/16 season I've been proudly working with Accrington Stanley for a variety of designs including the decima badge on the Accrington Stanley kit, as well as many more potential merchandise ideas. Please take a look at my Accrington Stanley section for more information on these.
I love to travel. In recent years I have been to many African and European countries and I have no intention of slowing down. I'd say my favourite locations to visit so far have been Rome, San Marino & Barcelona in Europe, as well as Egypt & Morocco in Africa.
