Mat BendCreative Director
“I think I’m still a designer?” says Mat. Mat set up Modern Designers as freelancer in 2004 but there are many more staff these days. Now he mainly talks a lot.
What role does music play in your everyday life as a designer?
I had to throw a copy of David Gray’s ‘White Ladder’ behind a cupboard in an agency I used to work at. So yes, it does have an influence. Especially in the office.
