There have been quite a few big changes at Matmi over the last couple of months – new projects, new staff, new babies and some great future opportunities in the pipeline – exciting times!
James has been mastering his role as Project Manager, and Michelle has now stepped into Operations Management - keeping the other Matmian’s on their toes and Jeff in tow! We’ve also been working with Liane Grimshaw, tapping into her vast knowledge of the digital industry which has been a great insight.
So then, we have Helen here as our Office Administrator and Social Media assistant, and our lovely designer Jen is here full time (after getting a distinction for her Master’s Degree in Games Design!) Joe, Jeff and Woody have been working their hearts out on Rollabear - Matmi’s upcoming release – so fingers crossed they can have their evenings back again soon!
We’d like to thanks all the promising work experience students who have recently helped out and (we hope) learnt a thing or two along the way – big thumbs up to Tom, John and Lucas for all their hard work – now looking forwards to having Tom back for his Uni’ gap year.
Congratulations to our Lead Designer Matt who just tied the knot, the other big news here has been BABIES! We have two very proud new dads at Matmi, Rob had a beautiful little girl called Lily Mae and Stewart’s little bundle of love, Esme, arrived this week.
Finally, when we were asked to put on youth workshops in character design for the local Barnaby Festival – we jumped at the chance, and the sessions were the first to sell out. Matmi created a mobile optimised website for the Barnaby treasure hunt.
We may think globally but that doesn’t mean we forget our local community and the importance of supporting it whenever we can!
