Paul Matson

I'm a designer interested in making information easier to understand.
I work for the Environment Agency creating GOV.UK digital services and previously worked for IOP Publishing, mostly on websites about physics.
In 2010 I completed an MA in Information Design at the University of Reading.

My book 'SowHow: A modern guide to grow-your-own veg' was published by Pavilion in April 2017.
