Design for Brands by Matt Plays

New England based designer with a thing for skateboarding, rock climbing, and being outside.

In 2008 my father and I founded Icon Snowskates, a company that hand-makes skateboards for the snow. While continuing our work I spent two years on the brand team at HubSpot, contributing to two Inbound conferences and their IPO.

I’m currently a lead designer at Burton, living, working, and riding in Burlington, Vermont.
