Gordon White started Design Matters in 1986 offering traditional design and marketing services to a wide range of public and private sector organisations throughout the UK. The arrival of the internet saw Design Matters move into web design, web strategy and online marketing then, with the arrival of Web 2.0 Design Matters became involved in social media and assisting their portfolio of clients to engage and communicate using new media.
