Hey there!

My name is matt.

I design new ways to create, play, and learn.

MATT CALLAHAN DESIGN

On the future of play:

The increasing accessibility of rapid prototyping, web, and VR technologies coupled with advances in developmental psychology and the psychology of play promise to revolutionize both how we play and how we learn.

I balance high-tech materials, methods, and platforms with a respect for cultural knowledge, cutting edge psychological research, and a love for traditional imaginative play in order to design new tools and strategies that foster intellect and promote creativity.

I create products for educators, students, rapid prototyping enthusiasts, creatives, and dreamers of all ages.
