    Our Creative Director and Co-Founder, Matt Nava, is the driving creative force behind Giant Squid and its games. Previously the Art Director at thatgamecompany, his artistic vision helped craft the award winning games Flower and Journey for the PS3.

    Journey, with over 33 Game of the Year and multiple Best Art Direction Awards, is a testament to Matt's ability to communicate deeply moving narrative through visual and interactive design. Matt wrote and designed the critically acclaimed book, The Art of Journey, in which he provides insight into the development process and showcases his artwork for the game.

    With Giant Squid, Matt hopes to create an artistic atmosphere where he can collaborate with talented developers to make games that build on and expand his vision of deeply immersive and meaningful experiences.
