Blog Posts about Community


Ben, our founder, moved to Brisbane (from London) in November 2006.

Almost immediately he discovered that very few networking groups catered to the community of website designers in Brisbane. He then founded Brisbane Web Design, for almost 10 years it was a very popular meet-up group for website designers, digital marketers and online entrepreneurs of all kinds.

As a team in 2012 Matter Solutions chose to support the charity Childhood Cancer Support. We took part in their Take Like A Pirate Day over the years and even had a whole Digital Marketing Workshop raising money for CCS dressed as pirates.

We've written a few blog posts over the years that refer to our communities, digital and local. These are listed below.
