Ty Mattson

18 May


Ty Mattson is an Irvine, CA-based graphic designer, illustrator, interactive designer, and principal of Mattson Creative. He’s worked with such big-name brands as ABC, Apple, Cartoon Network, Coke, and Discovery Channel. What caught my eye was the series of poster designs he did for the Showtime show Dexter, which if you haven’t seen yet, block off a week or two and get caught up. The time lapse video is a fantastic peek into the mind of Ty Mattson and into the Dexter series. Knowing the meaning behind the illustrated objects makes this series even better. Here’s more about the Dexter posters.

I also have a soft spot in my heart for letterpress and birth announcements. Ty’s design of his son’s birth announcement is spot on. Perfect!

He also runs his business out of an old lima bean processing warehouse built in 1895. It’s really cool how they kept a lot of the old feel of the building and tied it in with the fresh, new materials. Check it out.

Great stuff, Ty. Keep it up and thanks for the inspiration!
