Meet Matterlab

Impact is our why. Matterlab helps mission-driven leaders clarify their identity and communicate their impact.

Ashley Chellgren

Senior Director of Development
Perot Museum of Nature and Science

“The Perot Museum partnered with Matterlab to launch The Whynauts, a bilingual virtual learning experience for students in early 2021. At a time when visiting museums in person wasn’t possible, together we brought the joy of science into homes and classrooms across Texas through a video series and downloadable content. The integrated marketing campaign garnered over 90,000 registrations from parents and school districts incorporating the program into their curriculum. The initial positive reception helped the Perot Museum expand its education work through additional virtual and in-person programming.”

Sheleah D. Reed

Chief of Staff
Aldine Independent School District

“Our district was ready for a new brand and a new focus that clearly communicate that our schools are marching in one direction: always forward. Matterlab has been the perfect partner to design the refreshed brand in line with our vision for student success. That, along with strategic communications support to buoy our new five-year strategic plan, has been amazing. They’ve become an extension of our team and our sounding board for new ideas to drive us even further forward.”

Alan Cohen

Founder & CEO of the Child Poverty Action Lab (CPAL)
Co-Chair of the Dallas Mayor’s Task Force on Safe Communities

“We would not have been able to build this engine for change with such momentum right out of the gate without Matterlab. I especially rely on the team to rein in my many ideas and to take really complex information and make it simple, verbally and visually.”
