Universal Everything's Matt Pyke on being loud and colourful

From a garden shed in post-industrial Sheffield, Matt Pyke is at the centre of the design collaboration Universal Everything. From its earliest days four years ago right up to the present, Matt has been the only full-time employee. Permanently hooked into iChat, he plays the role of creative director and calls on a talented cast of both regular and not-so-regular contributors, purely on a needs-must basis.

With a reputation for producing dazzling colours and bold imagery and animation, the ethos at Universal Everything is, as the name suggests, to push styles to their logical extremes. You can't help but respect their earnest flamboyance, or admire the variety of things they do. We talk in depth to Matt to discover how Universal Everything works.
