Matt Dunn by Quinn Gavier

Your work and side-hustle helped you land jobs at Wieden+Kennedy, Mother London and Goodby Silverstein & Partners. Aside from working in these great agencies, were there other ways in which your side-hustle helped you?

I would say that my side-hustle with the NHS has helped me to distinguish the type of work that connects with people in the real world. The kind of work that’s original, has a purpose, relevant in culture and to its context. It’s also helped me understand that even with the smallest of budgets, for a side-hustle, or project, you can still make something big, impactful, or brilliant, that resonates with people across the world.
