Small Axe Creative is owned and operated by Matt Brett; a freelance web designer/developer with nearly 20 years of experience in the web industry. Originally from the suburbs of Toronto ON, Matt moved to Sooke, BC in 2012 and immediately fell in love with small town living.

Matt’s been working as a freelance web designer since 2005, and worked at MuchMusic on the web team prior to that, from 2000-2005.

While Small Axe Creative is a new venture for Matt, he has an extensive portfolio with some very reputable clients. Such as; Dine Alone Records, Equal Vision Records, Makeup Geek, Music Canada, and Polaris Music Prize. He’s also worked on dozens of projects for major international brands like; Ford, MLB, NBA, NHL, and Rogers.

Small Axe Creative is focused on providing stellar design and development services for small-medium businesses. We are a collective of designers, developers, and illustrators, and we’ve partnered with some world-class services to provide a one-stop-shop for small-medium sized businesses.
