Shitty Interview No.39

Matthew Haynes, the guy I have spent more time talking to & sharing dick jokes with over the past 3 months than my own husband. Why? Coz Matthew Haynes (together with Jedi programmer, Zann St. Pierre) is the genius mastermind who recently took our humble Sticks & Stones website & turned it into the Mothership that it is today.

Not only is Matthew a kick-ass web designer, he is also (among many other talents) the curator, host & founder of annual design event, ‘The Design Conference’ in Brisbane, Australia. The Design Conference is founded upon the belief that creativity and design are the keys to unlocking a happy and fulfilling life and lifestyle. Hosted annually over 2-3 days in May, the event features a tonne of the worlds most successful yet colourful men and women from the creative industry. Over six sessions each guests shares their industry insights and personal philosophy with the goal of inspiring the audience to believe in themselves, their dreams and what they hope achieve in their lives.

Since 2009, Matthews team has curated 10 events, featured over 90 speakers & hosted thousands of event attendees, & 2016 is looking to be their biggest one yet! Peep Matthews awesome Pozible campaign below to see how you can get involved.

But first, to get to know him a little better, here is our Sticks & Stones shitty interview with Matthew Haynes.

Sticks & Stones: Are puns ever ok? Please write one.
Matthew AD: 100% – Let’s end things on a ‘high ‘note!?

Sticks & Stones: Do you have any Quirks or rituals that you have to do every day?
Matthew AD: Routine rules my life! Jog – yoga – breakfast – social media – coffee – durrie – work – joz – sleep – rinse – repeat.

Sticks & Stones: Last crime you committed?
Matthew AD: Streamed a movie off I also have netflix! I only pay for movies at the cinema! Don’t mind a joz either.

Sticks & Stones: What makes you feel better?
Matthew AD: A twin paper jozza to help me sleep after a big day!

Sticks & Stones: Something your GF does that you will never quite understand?
Matthew AD: Work in retail. Not knocking it, but retail shopping blows!!! I’d much prefer to watch the people “freaks” who go there & work for myself.

Sticks & Stones: Favourite thing to call people?
Matthew AD: Cheif, legend, champ, bruh, their name!!!!

Sticks & Stones: You have to replace your human nose with an aniamal nose. What do you chose & why?
Matthew AD: I would want a dogs nose, so I could sniff out anything, anywhere!

Sticks & Stones: You have to shove one of the following in your eye or die. Please circle your preferred option.
Matthew AD: (poo poo circled) I was going to say a tampon but AIDS is a real poblem in that case, so poop it is!

Sticks & Stones: Worst thing you’ve ever done or said to your momma?
Matthew AD: Me & my old girl are besties! No smack talking. Only jokes!!!

Sticks & Stones: Please draw whats happening in your head when you hear the word discharge.
Matthew AD: I had to re-do the entire interview because what I drew the first time was bad taste! It was a VAGINA!
