Matthew’s career started when he was still a student at Coventry University studying automotive design. He sent a design folio to Charles Morgan at the Morgan Motor Company looking for a three-month work placement. Impressed by his folio, Charles took him on, and the placement ended up being a much longer engagement.
Charles liked Matthew’s work so much, that he made the decision to produce his first design. This became the Morgan Aeromax, the first ever concept car to come out of the Morgan gates and the first coupe for over 30 years. The concept was launched at the Geneva Auto Show in 2005 and was so popular that the decision was made to produce 100 limited edition production vehicles. At this point, Matthew was asked to join Morgan as the Head of Design and establish an in-house design studio – Morgan Design.
After the success of the Aeromax, Matthew then designed the Morgan Life Car, the Plus 8, the Eva GT and the 3 Wheeler as well as the Aero Supersports and Aero coupe. All of these designs were created in the small period of just seven years. Alongside designing cars, Matthew also put his design skills into Morgan’s brand design, exhibition stand design and associated marketing material and brochures.
In addition to Morgan Design, Matthew has also worked on many freelance projects for other car and bike manufactures, as well as becoming Head of Design for renowned watch manufacturer Lonville in 2011.
After the leaving the Morgan Motor Company, Matthew formed Matthew Humphries Design in 2013 and now offers customers a bespoke design service, specialising in automotive, product design. Matthew is able to take a product from visual concept design though to production.
In 2014 matthew founded MHD watches. MHD Watches are a British Watch Brand who produce limited edition motoring watches, using automotive design techniques & classic design cues.
