Matt Taylor has been a part of Sydney’s animation scene for 15 years, in many guises – character designer, director, graphic entrepreneur, studio manager and more. He’s also won his fair share of awards and spoken at fancy conferences both in Australia and overseas.
Following a BA (Visual) in Graphic Investigation at the Canberra School of Art, Taylor went to work with pioneering online video company KGrind and then co-founded award winning animation studio Sixty40. He has received awards from Promax, AEAF, D&AD and Good Design Australia.
In 2013 Taylor founded The Explainers, a digital communications studio helping clients engage, inform and persuade. Formed in response to the explosion in online video, The Explainers have a desire to create clear communications within complex storytelling. The first project was explaining The NBN one of the biggest infrastructure projects in Australia’s history since the Snowy Mountains scheme.
Since 2013 The Explainers have become a leading communications studio producing and have explained digital transformations for Westpac and IAG, training videos for NSW Health, sales videos for Telstra, innovation for The Department of Industry, Innovation and Science and service design for The Digital Transformation Office.
