Speaking at Target



This month, I had the honor of returning to Target headquarters to speak during their Fall National Week about creativity, imagination and wonder. I had a great time sharing my story and some recent work with the attendees.

SND CYN Studios


Mattson Creative is a small design firm, by design. Our size is a competitive advantage. I can respond quickly to, and collaborate closely with clients. Being intentionally small also allows me to selective with clients, agile when it comes to change, and hands-on with design. As a small design studio, we’ve worked directly with some of the biggest brands in the world – Apple, Billabong, CBS, Coke, Dreamworks, Mattel, Hasbro, and Nickelodeon, to name a few. Small is the new big.

The only downside of running a boutique studio is that you really don’t need that much space to do it. I’ve always wanted to work in a big, ultra-creative office – an inspiring environment, teeming with interesting people, doing inspiring work. But I’ve never wanted to manage the number of employees that would necessitate a studio of that size. My passion is design, not management. I wanted the energy, community and culture of a large creative agency…I just didn’t want the agency.

So I set out to create the type of office that I wanted to work in, and I invited my friends and colleagues to join me. It turns out that they were looking for the same thing I was: a unique environment and a creative community. I decided to expand our existing space in Old Town Irvine into a collaborative workspace for creative professionals. We filled it quickly and now the space is home to artists, designers, photographers, producers and developers. And I get to go to work everyday with my friends. We call it SND CYN Studios – which is derived from our address on Sand Canyon Avenue.

All summer we’ve been working on the building– a 125 year-old former lima bean factory – reimagining and redesigning the interior into a one-of-a-kind creative workspace – and we’re almost finished. Stay tuned to my blog for more pictures as we finalize the studio. It’s exciting to see it coming together.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost
on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform
like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that
I’m completely confused .. Any recommendations? Bless you!

robably the most important thing that you would want to concentrate upon when running this
business. It’s considered a surgical remodeling of the eye,
or may also be cataract surgery. As the longer you live with eye problems the more
complex your surgery becomes which in turn increases costs.

Choosing the right sms service provider for your business can take a little more of
your valuable time but at the end it will be all worth the time and effort.
Confirmed Opt-in refers to a process of verifying
a subscriber. People intend to respond more often to a message which is sent by a business rather
than a ‘number’.

Graphic-Exchange + Mattson Creative

A very special guest stopped by the studio today – Fabien Barral. On a US tour from France, Fabien is an incredible designer. See his work here. He also happens to run one of most incredible design blogs on the web, Graphic-Exchange.com which receives 160,000 visitors every month. Fabien and I have emailed over the years, and  but it was great to meet him today in person.

And he came bearing gifts! Take a look at these beautiful letterpressed coasters and calendars! You can get yours if you donate to support the site here. Well worth it!

- Ty + 8.9.11 | 3:41 pm


He is becoming more and more a marketer of his own products rather than keeping it real with his blog that had a simple but powerful purpose..

- Thiago + 8.9.11 | 5:04 pm

Thanks for sharing. Your friend does amazing work. Am speechless!

- Teresa + 8.12.11 | 9:27 am
