Over 30 years of interdisciplinary design work has made Matthew Waldman one of the world’s most respected designers. Matthew’s “techno-optimistic” work is driven by his belief that technology enables universal communication.

He is best known for NOOKA, where he designed accessories and watches that reinvented how time was told, as well as creating award winning eco-friendly package design.

Before NOOKA, Matthew gained recognition as a pioneer in digital interactive and UX design, founding New York Zoom in 1997, building an award winning global team at Reuters in 2002, and with his interactive design studio, Berrymatch.

Matthew has spoken at CES, the Chief Innovation Officer Summit, and the PSFK Conference; and taught at the Parsons’ School of Design and the Smithsonian Cooper Hewitt Museum and does workshops at universities and conferences globally.
