Matthew Butterly

To me, graphic design is an equation. It is an artistic endeavor where the freedom of creativity meets the precision of mathematics to create a piece that is not only pleasing to the eye but contains all the required information. Without good design, the commercial world that surrounds us would be monotonous and bland.

In my work, I am striving to combine the precision of design with the political motivation and spontaneity of street art. I am endeavoring to rise above the banality of the marketplace to create something new, something innovative and more broadly meaningful.
