Matt Guss fearless leader

Fearless Leader, Matt Guss

Matt is the long time creative director at Really Smart. He has overseen award winning creative work for all Really Smart clients including Nintendo, Parker Paint, Subway, Pierce Transit, Seattle Boat Show, Alice White Wines and Lawyers Title.

Prior to launching Really Smart & Matt Guss Advertising, Matt worked at McCann-Erickson and Cole & Weber Seattle.

Matt worked with Dan Wieden at McCann and learned you could be nice while doing your best work. He also mimicked Dan’s habit of falling asleep on his typewriter but without the same success.

Matt is a graduate of the University of Washington, founder of the Seattle Pipe Club (remember Ogilvy did his best while smoking a pipe) and loves to ride his sportbikes like a bat out of hell on the racetrack and the twisty back roads. He dragged his knee for the first time last summer and yes, that is a good thing for a sportbike rider. Matt’s also mastered a helluva good lion trim for Portuguese Water Dogs.

Great ideas should look simple … but they come from lots of hard, sweaty work.
