INFO

I'M MATT DANKO, A CROSS-DISCIPLINED VISUAL DESIGNER + CREATIVE GENERALIST.

 
 

Originally trained as a Medical Illustrator, Danko has since branched from this discipline and built up his skillset beyond most conventional creative role criteria to become a human multi-tool.

Identity developer, art director, visual designer, brand manager, craftsman, strategist, teacher, artist and eccentric, Danko now identifies simply as a 'Creative Monster.'

 
 
 

A Synesthete and Canadian expat, Danko relocated to Berlin in Spring 2014, concluding A Teaching position as the Instructor of Design for the Technical Communications Certificate at George Brown College in Toronto, Canada. 

Danko strives to constructively integrate clear visual design thinking into development cycles, experimenting with ideas and iterating often.

His design process is both analog and digital, combining traditional and modern methods, mediums, tools and materials to explore ideas and scale solutions for intelligent audiences. 

After working on mobile games, app UI/UX, corporate identity, furniture and visual design, Danko is now actively seeking a full-time creative leadership challenge in Berlin, or beyond.
