Matt Tyas — Web/UX Designer and Front-end Developer

Originally from Hebden Bridge. I live in Manchester and currently work as a UX Developer at the Co-Operative, where my main focus is UX and front-end build.

I’ve been in the web industry a while and I feel comfortable taking on a number of roles. I’m happy tapping out code, designing, creating user journeys and wireframes and speaking to clients. I even present and give talks from time to time.

I’m a nice bloke who gets on with people. I would never claim to be the best at anything, I’ll take advice where I need too but I’m also capable of plugging away on my own and putting my opinions forward. By that I mean I can be a bit of a show off…

In between my day job, running Manchester’s Finest and freelance work, you might bump into me at a conference or hear my questions being answered on web design podcasts. I am also a mentor for students at MMU, occasional music maker (I produce for the small independent label heavy crates), tweeter and even more occasional blog writer.
