Matthew Clipson – Graphic Design, Web Design, SEO and Social Media

I graduated from Falmouth School of Art in 1995, with a B.A. in Graphic Information Design. Since then I have worked for a variety of companies, including Fowlers Motorcycles, Wessex Water, the Ministry of Defence and the Audit Commission.

Since graduating I have produced freelance design work for companies such as Adam Clark Tree Services, AP Autocare, Beaufort Bespoke Kitchens, Bristol Airport, Bristol Water, Cordial & Grace and Winford Pre-School.

I have been self employed for over two years now, and have been working with clients such as Air Systems, Baseline Sports, Elite Advertising Consultants Ltd, Heathrow Airport, Masters Facilities Management Services, Bristol, Puzzle Pictures and Science Learning Centres.

I’d love to hear about any work you’d like to discuss

I live just south of Bristol on the outskirts of the Chew Valley

Here are a few of the things I see around these parts:

I'm near the airport, so I see quite a few of these

The Chew Valley is an area in North Somerset (with parts in BANES), just to the south of Bristol, England (well known for many famous landmarks, such as Bristol Zoo, the Suspension Bridge the Wills Tower). The valley is named after the River Chew which runs through it. Technically, the area of the valley is bounded by the water catchment area of the Chew and its tributaries; however, the name Chew Valley is often used less formally to cover other nearby areas, for example, Blagdon Lake, which is really part of the Yeo Valley.

It’s a great place to live; I’m only ten minutes from Bristol and 30 from Bath, with the nearest train station at Nailsea & Backwell. I’m on the ‘wrong’ side 🙂 by the airport, which makes it a bit noisy when the planes are taking off this way, but normally they fly away in the other direction and we don’t notice them.

If I wasn’t a designer I’d like to be an author. I’m working on it, but in the meantime here are the books I’m currently reading:

Microserfs cover by Douglas Coupland
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows cover by J K Rowling
