Matt Weems was raised in Vermont, where he drew compulsively from a very young age. He attended UC Berkeley for a BA in history, then the San Francisco Academy of Art University. He learned the Illustration trade as an apprentice to Bay Area illustrator Paul Fitts.

Matt provided the product illustration of Restoration Hardware and floor layout illustrations of Dockers (Levi Strauss & Co.) for over ten years. Besides these two long-term relationships he has done work for London Fog, Joe Boxer, Nike, FCB, and Pottery Barn, among others. In 2005 Matt created an Afghan Warlords website as a personal project.


Matt Weems has worked with me on projects for Dockers for over 12 years. He has always delivered quality work on time and many times with a ridiculously short turn around time. We use his renderings for all types of sell-in packages.

Quality and speed of execution don’t normally go together, but Matt’s work is exceptional, with even the most challenging tasks being delivered on time and on budget. Matt helped develop the Restoration Hardware illustration style and maintained it flawlessly, never faltering under the often typically ridiculous retail deadlines. During my 9 1/2 years as Creative Director at RH, Matt was a consistent talent as well as a reliable and enjoyable part of our team.
