Inspiring creativity. Founded by Olivia Triggs in 2007, Breed is a London-based creative agency representing a select but high-impact coterie of talents. The agency currently nurtures the work of 15 exciting artists, illustrators and photographers, each of whom has their own distinct style and unique perspective.
Breed prides itself not only on the vision and variety of its artists but also on the lasting role it plays in nurturing their talent, supporting their creative goals and creating opportunities to extend the scope of their practice.
With a refreshingly straightforward, hands-on approach, a culturally aware outlook and a spirited attitude, Breed London is the UK’s go-to agency for original art, photography and illustration.
Born in Liverpool, Matt studied in Edinburgh before moving to London in 2004.
After working as a Designer and Illustrator at a creative agency for brands including Nike, Nokia and Eley Kishimoto, Matt went on to lead the Graphic Design team at Liberty. Matt now works from his studio by the Thames.
