Matthew Williamson

Matthew Williamson was born and raised in Devonport, Auckland. He followed an early career path that involved surfing and laboring but moved on to become a graphic designer with medical publishing company ADIS Press. This led on to several roles as a magazine art director and graphic designer.

For the last twenty-two years, Matthew has worked with his brothers, Luke and Fraser, in the areas of design and publishing.

Matthew now lives just outside Warkworth, north of Auckland, with his wife Erena and their two children, Miles and Moana. He runs Halcyon Design with brother Luke and, when not at work or operating as a child taxi service, enjoys the aquatic and rural pleasures of the area.
