Matt Reed BA(Hons) PGCert.
Matt is a freelance inter-media artist and designer specialising in architectural and stained glass design, video production and graphic design for film and television.
He has worked in the creative industries since graduating from Kingston University in 1996 with a B.A. (Hons) in fine-art intermedia. In the late 90’s he worked in video post-production in Soho as an editor and worked on numerous high-end music videos, documentaries and feature films. He continues to work in film and TV to this day, although now he has switched to working in the art department. You can check out his credits here:
Alongside the film and TV work Matt has worked concurrently in art, design and music, and has focussed largely on working with architectural and stained glass. Following an apprenticeship in leaded glass making in London, he went on to study for a postgraduate in architectural glass at the renowned Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in 2010 where he met visiting lecturer Andrew Moor of Andrew Moor Associates, with whom he has worked on a number of large architectural glass commissions including two John Lewis stores in the UK and projects in Azerbaijan and Bahrain Airport.
His ability to translate ideas across a wide range of media means that he has the freedom to move between industries and currently designs wallpapers for film sets, directs music videos and continues to design for architectural glass projects. He has worked for all of the major TV networks and has had his work shown in London’s Institute of Contemporary Art and The National Portrait Gallery. His work is also included in a book entitled “The 100 Best Stained Glass Sites in London” which charts work in locations around London by some of the most respected artists working in stained glass between 1399 and 2015.
Matt is currently studying for an M.A. in architectural and urban design at the University of Brighton where he is exploring new ways of working with technology such as Augmented Reality and 3d scanning.
He is based in Hove, East Sussex.
