Matt Gilbert

Senior Creative at Atomic London
United Kingdom


Alongside Art Director Dave Tokley I've managed to work Below, Above and Through the 'Line'​, always preferring projects that ignore, smash or go around it. Three years at Glue added digital experience to the mix. Blogging since 2011 has given me a better understanding of social media - along with a platform to write whatever I want - although this doesn't always feel as liberating as I'd like.

Together with Dave I've won several awards (including a Cannes Lion - Film, Silver) for TV, online film and integrated work. One day I'd love to bag an Aerial.

Now a CD at Atomic I'm relishing the opportunity to help and support others to do work that stirs people to think, or laugh, or be moved, before sharing, doing or buying something.
