Matthew Piper–Graphic Design
Type and logo design
I am a graphic designer with more than twenty years experience of working in television. I began my career working for Yorkshire Television in Leeds. Two years later I moved to London and after a winter with the Weather Channel I took a job at Sky as a designer and director on the Sky One team, where I worked for three years. I then spent five years working for two broadcast design agencies - Kemistry and BDA - on a range of projects for clients in the UK and abroad. For the twelve years since then I have designed for the BBC’s portfolio of channels and platforms - as well as creating work for other broadcasters.
BBC, BSkyB, Discovery, DITG, Eurosport, five, Hallmark, ITV, Lifetime UK, Living TV, National Geographic, Red Bee Media, Cinenova, Kanal 2, RTL, Sky Italia, TV Norge, Endemol, Granada, Ninja Tune, Railfilms, Thames Talkback, Barclays, Coca-Cola, Disney, Freuds, Mykindaplace, Sara Lee, Qatar Airlines, Streets Online, Sony SCEE.
I have created work for on-air, print, and digital media. This includes logos, channel identity, on screen presentation packages, on-air promotions, title sequences, sponsorship sequences, and automated design systems. As part of the design process I like to generate my own ideas, plan the schedule, and manage the project from briefing to delivery.
I approach graphic design as a problem solving process - using a combination of typography, space, and the visual arts to represent or communicate an idea or message.
