ian-matthews

Ian has over twenty five years industry experience (although he doesn’t like to admit it), with a clear understanding of clients requirements producing design led and yet client focused solutions. He has extensive experience in the commercial design field working locally and internationally.

Educated at Trent Polytechnic, Ian joined as Project Director, having previously worked as a Senior Associate at Aedas and as Design Director at iDEA Design Consultants and PDM International.

Whilst with iDEA, his BCO Award winning scheme for the BBC at Mailbox, Birmingham set the standard for the BBC Manchester project. He has experience working in the UK, Europe and Asia PAC region.

Ian has worked with major financial and legal clients, as well as more brand orientated clients like Adidas, L’Oreal and boohoo.com. Whilst in Asia he worked on many mixed use developments and Hotel & Casino projects in excess of 300,000 sqft.

Ian is an avid art collector, collecting pieces from around the world on his travels. He also loves to cook and entertain. His passion for interior design also means he is partial to developing a property or two in his spare time. He’s currently looking for his next project.
