I work with brilliant creative teams to create inspiring products, branding, and advertising campaigns.
In 2014 I co-founded Thomas Clipper, a male luxury cologne, leather goods and grooming brand. We’re stocked worldwide in 30+ independent retailers, the Soho House group, Fortnum & Mason and on our website.
We’ve launched a dozen products, run several successful crowdfunding campaigns, raised two rounds of VC funding and have been featured everywhere from GQ to The Telegraph, Esquire, Monocle and beyond.
Freelance Brand Planner
Working as a brand planner and a brand strategist for various international agencies, I have experience on large global accounts in the US (Nike) and Italy (Jeep, Fiat) and, with medium sized social ventures in the UK (Cafedirect, MSC).
Some of the agencies I’ve worked with as a consultant or an employee are Wieden+Kennedy (Portland, USA), Leo Burnett (Turin, Italy) and Nice & Serious (London, England).
I love businesses that make the world better. More exciting, more delicious, more interesting.

Some kind words
Here’s some of what my clients have to say about my brand consultancy work:
“Matt and his team did an incredible job of developing the Lavanda brand from scratch. He’s worked alongside us from day one to understand our vision, providing invaluable guidance that has resulted in the creation of something which we believe is timeless.”
— Guy, CEO Lavanda
"The world-class branding Matt led for us has continued to serve us well as we expand our little business all around the world"
- Marshall, CEO of Little Bird, in Wall Street Journal Business Blog
I’ve also been quoted in The Guardian regarding luxury branding.
