Mattis is a designer that values a good concept and thinks that interesting and beautiful visuals are a given. He is the holder of a first class honours degree (BA) in graphic design, after completing two years at Kristiania University College in Norway and a one year top-up course at Southampton Solent University. During his time studying in England he discovered a love for calligraphy which he likes to incorporate into his work when he feels it is appropriate. Another thing he discovered in England is that he likes to combine analoge and digital techniques to create something that both feels tactile and professional. To avoid falling back into the same patterns over and over he does weird stuff, like painting calligraphy with a brick.
