Matias Corea

Matias was born and raised in Barcelona. His first studio space was his father’s architecture firm, a major influence on his design. Matias was trained classically in typography, editorial design, packaging and identity. He moved to NY in 2002 to work for Michael Kaye at AR Media where he designed for Dolce & Gabbana and Versace. In 2006, Matias joined forces with Scott Belsky to co-found Behance – a company dedicated to organizing the creative world – leading all brand identity, UX and product design for each Behance property including the Behance Network, ProSite, Action Method, and the 99% Magazine & Conference.
