Born and raised in Barcelona, Matias Corea graduated in Graphic Design from La Massana Art School. In his early years, he was very influenced by the omnipresence of electronic music in Barcelona. Working for multiple DJs and clubs, he found a canvas to explore the boundaries of graphic design and expression. This is where he developed an awareness of the crucial importance of the communication aspect of design. It’s in his father’s architecture studio, where he found a love for architecture which strongly influenced him and brought an inherent order to his design work. This geeky passion for organizing information found its home in New York.
His U.S. career began with AR Media, working under the guidance of Michael Ian Kaye. In fact, he instilled in Matias a respect for design and typography as art forms. Thirteen years later, he continues to work on print design, but now he focuses on interaction design. As Co-Founder and Head of Design at Behance, a company dedicated to organizing the creative world, he led the brand identity and design of all Behance products including the Behance Network, ProSite, The 99U Conference & Magazine and Action Method, amongst others. His work has earned a Type Directors Award and several Webby nominations and honoree awards, as well as the distinction of being named finalist at the SXSW Interactive Awards for two years running.
