Matt Johnson has had an unconventional path to his current position at London-based startup, Bare Conductive.
While studying economics as an undergraduate at Colorado College in Colorado, USA, Matt laid the foundation for an interest in the relationship between information, interfaces and behavior through his research on vehicle design and driver behavior. After completing his degree Matt, continued to work as a vehicle fabricator and worked briefly as a substitute a substitute teacher before beginning a solo circumnavigation of the globe by motorcycle. After traveling extensively and exploring many potential paths, Matt recognized his deep interest in the intersection of technology and design.
Intent on finding the right environment for his analytical, mechanical and creative skills, he moved to London, UK to attend the Innovation Design Engineering dual Masters program at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London. While at the RCA, along with 3 colleagues, Matt began a project that he is still pursuing today.
Now known as Bare Conductive, this fast-growing startup was founded to explore the potential of a unique electrically conductive material created by its four founders. Matt is still concerned with fundamental questions about our relationship to technology and through Bare is exploring the potential of a future where electronics can take many forms and where our interactions with computing are defined by the information and not the interface. Matt continues to live and work in London, UK.
