While virtual reality technology has been around for while, the technology has only recently advanced to the point where both consumers and companies are rapidly exploring the many applications. Immersive VR is a studio that focuses exclusively on producing virtual reality experiences, augmented reality experiences (like Pokemon Go) and 360 video (which most of you have probably seen on Facebook). While only a few years old, Immersive VR has already landed big clients like Yamaha Music, Dr. Martens, and more.
Even if you’ve never put on a VR headset and you never plan to–Matt’s story shows how embracing cutting edge technology can put your agency in a class all its own.

Then, in 2009, Matthew upped sticks and relocated to Switzerland where he created Media Frontier – a digital design agency based in Geneva.
