CEO of Sketch Group and Visual Thinking Expert


Matthew Magain is an award-winning illustrator, designer, author, and speaker with a passion for helping people communicate better using visual language.

Current Work

As founder and CEO of Sketch Group, his collective of creative souls use sketching to solve problems, tell stories, explain ideas, and capture conversations. Over the years, he has created a whiteboard animation about the federal budget, graphically recorded a presentation for Malcolm Gladwell, graphically facilitated a board meeting at the ABC, and visualised a journey map of the foster carer system. He believes sketching can be transformational.

Matthew’s work has been featured in several books, and he is a regular guest on podcasts about visual thinking. He lives in Melbourne and spends his spare time buying LEGO® online and pretending it’s for his daughters.

Having Matt capturing the stage moments was a unique experience for our guests, and people loved seeing him work his magic on the paper. Culture Amp

Matt was one of the highlights of the Fusion conference. His work was a conversation starter and really helped to focus the audience. Drawing, interpreting, engaging; he was awesome!

International Association of Business Communicators

Matt captured the event beautifully, and engaged with our attendees. The canvas provided a tangible way to interact with the content. Our team members really enjoyed it as we felt like we were there, even when we were not!
