Matt Russell

Matt always knew he wanted to do something creative (apart from the time he was dead set on becoming a farmer at six years old). After graduating in graphic design from Hull, he found work immediately for a local agency and was involved in all aspects of design, be it print, branding or digital.

He wanted to join RED from the minute he stepped through the front door, working for impressive clients alongside a passionate and friendly team, in an awe-inspiring building. Matt is a self-confessed sports anorak, an avid follower of Hull FC, a keen sportsman, while also favouring the local music scene and craft beers.

Most interesting assignment

Working on RED’s website – it was a great way to get to know the company early on.

My VW Polo – ‘Walter’ (a combination of the registration plate and a character from Breaking Bad).
