Food on call

Matt McClusky is all about food. Whether he is catering an event, delivering food for his monthly meal delivery service, or hosting one of his (now famous) traveling themed supper clubs in downtown Denver, Matt dishes it up however you like it.

Foodie Call Catering is a full-service catering company whose ongoing evolution has been bringing great tasting food to your door. When Matt, the owner of Foodie Call, said he needed more to 'dish', MATTER was glad to make his meal delivery and (shhh...soon to be launched) Fitness Meals part of the story. Word of mouth is key in his industry so designing his social media marketing was a priority. His design materials are flexible and fun loving – just like his food.

Contact Foodie Call to talk about your upcoming and on-going food needs. And if you mention us we bet he'll extend his meal delivery cut off date by a day or two.

A Cover and Feature Story in The Westword

When Joel Warner of the Westword contacted Rick about a possible story, we had no idea what MATTER was in for. Joel became a regular fixture around the studio for two months; sitting in on meetings, watching us prep for our Annual Party, and spending many lates night with Rick when the phone stops ringing and when he gets down to (the other) work. The story was last week's cover and feature. And just in case you missed are all the links you need. His article captures philosophies, and the conceptual framework which makes the studio so unique. Special thanks to all the contributors to the story and the communities in Brooklyn, Wisconsin, Austin, Nashville and Denver who have helped bring attention to the studio's works.

Check out the entire story online at the Westword.
A super short video about a recent print is available on You Tube
For what it's worth the Westword also included Rick's definition of graphic design...this is a teaching tool (naturally) and it is fully annotated...don't forget your sense of humor.
