Matthew Roop

I am a design addict and creative leader living and working remotely from Singapore. Previously I served as V.P. of Design at ZEBEDEE, a bitcoin lightning payment SaaS - where I grew the design department from 0 to 20. Before that I worked with the literal legends Jessica Walsh and Stefan Sagmeister in their collaborative studio. From time to time - I teach at the National University of Singapore. One of my favorite projects that I’ve worked on lately is Mixoloshe. See if you can spot the picture of our big celebrity partner down below (hint: look in “one direction”).

When I’m not working you can find me chowing down on some Singaporean “local food”, helping my wife run our family design studio, or most likely, playing Elden Ring.
