The perfect balance of digital flavour and refreshment. 

The word ‘Matso’s’ is synonymous with sun-soaked, blissfully warm days spent at the beach with an icy-cold, thirst-quenching drink in hand. Matso’s came to us needing a complete overhaul of their website to capture this vibe online, and we delivered just that.

Think Aussie larrikins, swaying palms, and a playful colour palette that looks as delicious as grandma’s famous pavlova. Drawing inspiration from new packaging, we expanded the set of characters to create a library of people and animals, slipping in ‘aussie-isms’ along the way. To take it even further, we brought them to life with animation, adding another layer of depth to the website.

In a testament to the websites design and user experience, Matso’s was awarded Website of the Year 2024 in the Hospitality Category at the Australian Web Awards. This recognition further solidifies Matso’s position as a leader in the industry, both in terms of their products and online presence.

“I’ve worked with Start on two new websites over the last six months and they have been nothing but a dream to work with. Great communication, kept to deadlines (and kept our team on our toes for deliverables which was great) and the finished products exceeded expectations. Thanks for all of your hard work Start Team, can’t wait to work on more projects together in the future!”
