The Port is a highly creative, multidisciplinary design studio in Edinburgh. We work across a broad range of disciplines – Branding, Graphic design, Exhibition, Interpretive design, Literature design, Web design, Illustration and Art Direction. We approach every project imaginatively and inquisitively to provide a well-considered, well-crafted outcome.
The Port Creative is led by Andy Matthew, an award winning designer with over 25yrs experience working for a number of leading UK design and branding agencies.
After completing a BA Honours Degree in design from Edinburgh College of Art, his professional design life started out in Aberdeen before taking him to London in 1993 and into the world of FMCG branding and advertising. In 2007 he returned to Edinburgh where he worked as a Senior Creative for threebrand in Edinburgh. During his time there he was lucky enough to work with brands such as William Grant & Sons, Heineken, Diageo and Proximo Spirits.
In 2014 Andy completed a MA in Design Management from Staffordshire University and was awarded a Masters with Merit. In his spare time you'll find him either in the boxing gym or with his family, taking advantage of all the exciting galleries, events, exhibitions and festivals Edinburgh has to offer.
