MATTHEW MANOS – VERYNICE


Matthew Manos is a social entrepreneur that is dedicated to disrupting the way the design industry operates. Matthew began his freelance career at the age of 16 (2005), which is the same year he took on his first pro-bono client. Three years later, he founded a verynice design studio (2008), a design and innovation consultancy that dedicates over 50% of its efforts toward free services for non-profit organizations. Matthew has helped build over 300 brands in every sector and industry across the globe, and his studio works with a diverse clientele that range from Fortune 500 companies to small local shops. As of 2012, verynice has also provided over $500,000 worth of pro bono design and consulting services in 6 continents to 175+ organizations thanks to our team of 100+ international volunteers. Clients include The United Nations, MTV Networks, Edison International, Facebook, Toyota, Kaiser Permanente, Disney, and Human Rights Campaign.

Matthew’s work and ideas have been published in 100+ print and online venues internationally including Forbes, The Guardian, The Huffington Post, and Wired Magazine. He is also a contributing writer for Social Earth and Beautiful/Decay Magazine. Matthew speaks regularly at events and institutions across the United States including TEDx, Social Enterprise Alliance, UCLA. Matthew’s current research investigates the cultural relevance of “pro-bono,” business as a medium for critical inquiry, and the development of systems that facilitate radical approaches to entrepreneurship. Representative of his passion for connecting the fields of design and business, in the summer of 2012, Matthew pioneered the first class on entrepreneurship in the UCLA School of Arts and Architecture. He holds a BA in Design Media Arts from UCLA (2010), and an MFA in Media Design from the Art Center College of Design (2012).

Here’s some of Matthew’s work!
