We believe design is best when it is simple, honest, and human. We think we know just how to do that. We work with kindness, purpose, and integrity - but most of all, we work with people. We aim to exceed expectations - both yours and ours. We strive to build brands that evoke emotion and connect with people on a forever kind of level. We're inspired by corporations with big vision and by start-ups with big dreams. We want to help you build something incredible.

THE FIRM

Make & Matter was founded in 2010 and is based in Austin. Though we're deep in the heart of Texas, we work with niche to national brands, with clients and teams all across the nation, and on products sold around the world. Our purposefully small shop is built to deliver the goods with the benefit of a more personal, designer-direct relationship. Our work can be found in annuals, books, blogs, and most importantly, on the shelf at your local grocer.

THE FOUNDER

Every project starts in the hands of founder, Trina Bentley. After more than a decade of design and art direction for publications, agencies, and in-house marketing departments, Trina discovered - and fell in love with - the discipline of package design. She launched Make & Matter to build and position brands for success through beautiful, functional package solutions. With her gung ho approach, keen eye, and willingness to work (and rework), Trina has carved out a niche crafting products and building successful CPG brands.
