Matt Magain

CEO of Sketch Group and Visual Thinking Expert


Matthew Magain is an award-winning illustrator, designer, author, and speaker with a passion for helping people communicate better using visual language.

Current Work

As founder and CEO of Sketch Group, his collective of creative souls use sketching to solve problems, tell stories, explain ideas, and capture conversations. Over the years, he has created a whiteboard animation about the federal budget, graphically recorded a presentation for Malcolm Gladwell, graphically facilitated a board meeting at the ABC, and visualised a journey map of the foster carer system. He believes sketching can be transformational.

Matthew’s work has been featured in several books, and he is a regular guest on podcasts about visual thinking. He lives in Melbourne and spends his spare time buying LEGO® online and pretending it’s for his daughters.
