Foxduo Design was founded in 2015 by Matt Lamont.
After graduating in his field with first class honours, Matt worked in various design roles within the industry. Travelling and meeting with the people who inspired him, Wim Crouwel, Lance Wyman, Tony Brook among others, Matt made the decision to set up his own studio; enabling him to choose and pitch for projects that align with his values as a designer.
With a personal collection of around 2000 books, journals, catalogues, posters and other ephemera from the design world; Matt utilises his extensive archive in detailed research for each client and their brief.
Clients include; the NHS, National Science and Media Museum, Bradford Council, The Broadway and Barnardo’s. Foxduo also create brand identities for boutique bars and restaurants, from conception to web presence and beyond and design the digital artwork for a number of local magazines.
Matt has been invited to various institutions to talk about his work and library. Leeds City College, Bradford School of Art, Shipley College and creative agencies have warmly received his expertise and passion for graphic design.
