I'm Dan Matutina ((website hidden)) , a Designer & Illustrator based in Sunny Philippines. I'm also the Co-founder of Plus63 Design Co.
I was born in Tacloban City, Leyte, an island province south of Manila. My province is rich in stories of epic war battles and traditional folklore. Having been born on July 20 -- sharing the same month and day of the first man on the moon -- I also grew up with a keen interest in reading science encyclopedias and works of science fiction, apart from detective novels and comics. Although I studied at a high school geared towards math and science, I still pursued my passion for drawing and painting.
I've worked with a bunch of really nice clients: Fast Co., The Wall Street Journal, GOOD Magazine, WIRED, Jamie Oliver Magazine, Rogue, Walker Books, ESPN, IDW Publishing (Cobra Files), Havaianas, Paypal, Mediatemple, (website hidden), Frog Design, Natural Resources Defense Council, Droga5 (for ID Gum), Giant Ant, Heineken, Nike & Coca-Cola. among others.
I love traveling! I love reading books, watching movies and meeting people. I'm into Art, Design and Films.
If you ever find yourself in Asia, drop by the Philippines. It's a really awesome country!
Nice to meet you. :)
