Graphic designer makes prestigious entrepreneurs’ list

By Anita Jaynes on 1 June, 2020

Entrepreneur Danny Matthews has made a prestigious list of the South West’s most promising business people.

Every year, Business Insider magazine publishes its 42 Under 42, featuring 42 individuals (all under 42 years old) who represent the future for business in the region.

This year’s list includes Danny Matthews, who runs graphic design and branding studio Danny&co. from offices in South Cerney, near Cirencester. 

Danny set up Danny&co. to fulfil a lifelong dream of working in design, after an earlier successful career in financial services. The business has gone from strength to strength. 

One Danny&co. product called Content Amplifier particularly impressed the 42 Under 42 panel Content Amplifier clients submit a weekly video which Danny and his team repurpose for 15 platforms in five media types (video, audio, graphic, visual and written). The first wave of the product sold out within 48 hours.

“I was so surprised and proud to discover I had made it to this year’s 42 Under 42 cohort, graphic designers don’t get this kind of recognition” said Danny. “It will be a great way to meet business owners with similar goals to me, and to learn from each of our different journeys and share experiences. I am really looking forward to opportunities to collaborate and also to get to know other business people across the region.”

David Clensy, editor of South West Business Insider magazine, said, “Each year in the magazine we profile 42 of the most exciting young business people, under the age of 42, in the region.  We have been doing this annually since 2008 in the South West, so our 42 under 42 alumni make for an impressive group of entrepreneurs and business leaders at different stages of their business journey. 

“Danny Matthews was chosen in this year’s intake in recognition of his years of entrepreneurial endeavours and his particular success with his brand and design studio Danny&co., which has developed its content management product for brands, Content Amplifier.”
