Matt Webb

Matt Webb is CEO and Principal at BERG, and co-founded the studio in 2005. He is responsible for its growth and direction, balancing client partnerships that set strategy and define categories, with internal research and new product development. He brings a broad literacy in business, design, technology, and future trends.

Matt’s goal is that the output of the studio is beautiful, inventive and mainstream, and that its products are aspirational – designing not for the world as it is now, but for the world as it should be.

Matt holds an MPhys in Physics from Oxford University, and has been writing and creating for the Web since 1998 (including blogs, web toys and collaborative short fiction). Previously he has been an engineer at UpMyStreet, and worked in R&D at the BBC.

He is co-author of the book Mind Hacks (O’Reilly, 2004), a popular collection of explorations into the workings of the brain. It has since been translated into 7 languages, and was reviewed by the Guardian and New Scientist. In 2012 he was named by Wired as one of Britain’s top 100 digital power-brokers. Also in 2012, BERG was included in Fast Company’s annual list of the world’s 50 most innovative companies.

He is a regular speaker on the inspirational role of design and technology in culture, and has keynoted conferences in California, Copenhagen, Istanbul and Sydney. He lives in east London.
