Founded by Cornish creative Dave Matthews


Following many years in the creative industry both in the UK and Europe where design, imagery and communications were at the core of his work, Dave has since returned to his roots here in Cornwall.

Very much a 'Cornish European' following almost two decades in Germany and Switzerland he is extremely passionate about Cornwall and the preservation of its beauty, traditions and heritage.  Some folks in the county will know him socially from the world of Cornish Pilot Gig rowing, whilst others as an accomplished landscape photographer or for his graphic design, illustration and fine art printing services. More recently he has added garden landscape design and visualisation to his services which often incorporates actually building it as well, especially in the Summer! More info and photos coming soon

Cornish Origins is a new venture and still very much in its "soft launch" phase where the intention is to release a range of products as well as the usual design services such as logos, leaflets, literature, branding and website design etc. The product range is a growing collection of beautiful illustrations and stunning photographic fine art prints for all occasions and locations, much of which is inspired by a wealth of experience not to mention the love of a landscape in which he feels so lucky to live. His archive stretches back almost 25 years from which much of the inspiration is drawn.

Most of the image based products are likely to be low volume productions, many with bespoke

or personalised options available whilst ordering. Some may even be random, original creations and therefore unique, one-off pieces.

Also check out the services page to read more about Dave's other skills. 

So a great resource to find an individual designer for you, your home or your business needs. Not to mention some beautiful gifts with unique, personalised options and a touch of Cornishness!
