Hello. I’m Mathew Wilson, a UX Designer and a former founding partner of With Associates, a digital consultancy which ran from 2004 to 2016. I’m interested in how and why things work, what makes us act in the ways that we do, and in finding the most responsible ways to design* systems that benefit people.

Right now, I’m in the fortunate position of living in rural France with my family, while continuing with some part-time (remote) Lecturing at Kingston University.

Documenteering is my portmanteau of documenting and orienteering. It refers to a belief that we navigate the world by collecting and subscribing to the thoughts and observations of others, and, where possible, adding a few thoughts of our own. Standing on the shoulders of giants and all that. Learn more about the idea here.

LinkedIn – Which sits there, you know, like it does.

With Associates Instagram – Which were also mostly my observations.


A tiny word for an enormous and important way of thinking and approaching challenges. The main topic that I’ll be exploring more on this blog.
