The Network.

After years of award-winning work together, Cindy Curtis Nelson & Joanna Peña-Bickley founded Matter. 
Together, they reconnected with talented brand innovators whose chemistry produced the magic of internationally recognized work and bottom-line business results for clients.  This collaborative environment fostered an entirely new agency culture and business model that delighted clients and top-talent alike.  


Recognizing that their most talented team members are truly entrepreneurs – the Matter Network was born with the belief that restless, curiosity produces innovative ideas. Together, they built an open marketplace for innovators giving them a community, platform and business model -- all while delivering superior service and ideas to clients like Rémy Martin, Sephora, Macy's and BlackRock.
