– March 21, 2022 —
Matt Heald, a Barnsley artist who has designed a range of t-shirts, has announced his expansion into logo design, merch design, and brand development. This comes after the viral spread of his t-shirt designs, worn by Hollywood A-Listers including Keanu Reeves and Samuel L. Jackson.
What started out as spare time fun has slowly turned into a new business venture for Matt who founded Retro Design Co. in 2021.
Matt’s first brush with the stars came when film star Keanu Reeves was pictured wearing his design alongside video game director Hideo Kojima. Keanu later went on to wear another of Matt’s designs in the Weezer music video alongside fellow Bill & Ted actor Alex Winter.
His latest project was commissioned by Samuel L. Jackson as a gift for the cast and crew of a new Marvel series.
“When Nick Fury calls and asks you for help, you can’t say no!” joked Matt “Samuel L. Jackson is an absolute legend on and off the screen, it was a huge honour to work with him and his team”.
The design work for Jackson was a unique T-shirt, gifted to the cast and crew of Marvel’s Secret Invasion. Secret Invasion is the latest Marvel series filmed at Pinewood Studios, as well as areas of Leeds & Halifax. The T-shirt illustrates Nick Fury’s new look without his iconic eye patch.
“Sam quite literally signed off on the project. He sent across his signature and we printed it on the inside collar and back of each tee. It’s amazing seeing his name next to my logo. If that wasn’t cool enough, he even took the time out to send me a video testimonial to help spread the word about Retro Design Co.”.
