My advice? Don't use Mat at all .... unless of course, you want to work with someone who is tres amazing! Mat exudes fun and enthusiasm and delivers on practical yet cutting edge design solutions. He'll also enlighten you with his wit and humour. I truly hated every minute of dealing with him. He really was too much of a breath of fresh air.
Don't work with him. We want him all to ourselves!
(In all seriousness, Mat is a magnificently talented guy - don't hesitate to use him)
Caroline Scott - Senior Designer
The partnership Dpod has formed with Think Packaging has created an awesome bunch of opportunities. In a world where you really need to stand out to get noticed, Think Packaging and Mat have helped us to not only open doors, but kick them down. Mat’s enthusiasm, skill and personality have been a god send to my team, and he has helped us launch to all of our clients the fact that we are serious about packaging and display. Mat you Rock!
Andrew Nalder - Managing Director - Dpod Ltd
Mat is a ****ing genius. He can take a piece of blank card and turn it into a functional piece of packaging 'sculpture' I swear that we could have just added one word of black helvetica type to some of his creations and still won a packaging award!
I hate him.

“Mat does excellent work. His ability to THINK in 3D is amazing and knowing structural strength of materials, designing in CADS and knowing production issues well, makes him a very valuable creative asset to any team project. Plus he’s a great and funny bloke. “
Jason Petterson, Director - Gusto Design
"Mat quickly understood our project brief - loaded with many "no" and "must" constraints - and developed an elegant solution that merchandises the product beautifully, reduces our environmental impact, and is cost effective. Our next set of products we are developing have many similar, and more complex, packaging constraints but I know Mat will conquer our packaging requirements with equal speed, creativity, and meaninful solutions as the first project."
Jeremy Black, Principal, Jasper + Black
"Mat - THINK Packaging is an ideal partner for creative packaging for my delicate objects. He doesn't deal with the package as a wrap or just a box, he creatively customizes the package to serve it's purposes and still keep its aesthetic side.
From our business relationship, I could feel the great level of experience from the minute of briefing to sampling to the final excution. I respect the professionalism Mat showed and meeting the deadlines in such a tight project was an excellent proof.
Excellent 360 approach from briefing & first sampling through to feedback, final testing and production. I felt relaxed during the process and been kept informed with all updates.
For sure in the future. I always integrate creativity not only in the object design process but even in its packaging and Mat can meet this standard well."

Mat Bogust is probably the most talented packaging designer I have worked with. It’s been a pleasure creating ideas together and seeing them become reality. His skills at producing hand-crafted mockups from cardboard are inspirational and there’s nothing better than seeing a design in it’s final form before it goes to be diecut or computer-cut. We look forward to continuing with future collaborations ...
Galen King, Creative Director - Lucid Design
Working with Mat has been an absolute pleasure. His clever ideas and industry insights made light work of the mailer / retail box we required for our Zen Chalkboard range. The finished pack is even better than we had expected. The quality of the hand created sampling, execution and engineering of the whole thing totally blew us away. We're super chuffed with the outcome! Mat insists that it was a piece of cake which just proves his ninja status - a truly talented fellow.
If you're looking for a professional, precise and very creative packaging designer then look no further. Think Pack's Mat Bogust is very well versed in his skill!

"We engaged Think Packaging to develop packaging for our unique product - SwypeGlove which are super-warm precision touchscreen gloves designed to work with iPhones, Droids, iPads, GPS and other touch screen devices. We were drawn to THINK Packaging initially because the portfolio was refreshingly different and Mat had a great business card, which told us he liked experimenting and wasn't afraid to be daring with design. Mat has been great to work with. He spent the time to understand our concept product and the nature of our business and gave us a customized quote. In spite of us being on the other side of the world, we've worked effortlessly with Mat over email and Skype and he came up with not one but four amazing designs. At present, we're in the stages of final wrap-up. Its been fun working with Mat and Think Packaging so far and I strongly recommend THINK Packaging if you want an 'out-of-the-box' design."
Vik Colaso, co-founder of SwypeGear, LLC.
"Thanks to Mat's ninja packaging skills, he was able to produce some very unique packaging for my USB and business cards. I needed to present top of the line marketing collateral to potential clients and woo them with my creative style... it worked! Mat put his ideas in front of me and turned them into fruition, I've never seen a ninja so dedicated. The quality matched our brand and the best news is, they worked so well... I need more!"
