Here are the people who will help make it happen.
A co-founder of Dot Matrix, Brian has 26 years of experience in package design, branding, POP, B2B, marketing and social media. He has designed branded products and packaging in the food, housewares, electronics, hardware, nutraceuticals, cosmetics and automotive industries, which has given him the experience to successfully build a brand from the ground up. His résumé includes fortune 500 companies such as Bayer, Pfizer, JVC, Kenwood and Unilever, and he has many challenger brands such as Oogie's Snacks and You Love Fruit under his belt. His greatest joy is seeing clients' faces light up when they see their dream come to life.

A co-founder of Dot Matrix, Nadeem has close to 30 years of experience in branding, publishing, web marketing and package design. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology, he worked his way up to become design director for several agencies in New York before starting his own design firm in the Flatiron district of Manhattan. There, he launched campaigns for the New York Knicks, Madison Square Garden, Hasbro, SiriusXM and Disney. Since joining forces with Brian Demeduk, Nadeem has worked closely with the rest of the team at Dot Matrix to create dynamic visual solutions. As a firm believer in combining the power of a strong concept with an unexpected execution, Nadeem challenges himself to explore this methodology with every project. Nadeem lives in the suburbs of southern New Jersey with his wife and two children. For him, tennis is a favorite pastime (that his wife thinks borders on an addiction)!
