Ottermatics is a small Florida based design firm that takes a human-centered, lean-design approach to helping organizations succeed.  We envision new companies and brands, and we design the products and experiences that bring them to life.   Our products are designed with love and thought. Things that make the world a better place. Not just ordinary things, radically different things. 

Aleksey Matyushev

Principal Solutions Tinkerer 



When not chasing goats down the Swedish countryside, Aleksey enjoys relaxing by throwing his legs on the dinner table while drinking a glass of wine.  Aerospace Engineer by trade and superhero by night, Aleksey spends most of his nights alone in a dark corner inventing new products, pretending to understand Mandarin, and wearing his superhero cape.

Aleksey loves minimalism and enjoys exploring the bare necessities of product design. 

Nick Peleaz

Senior Grease Monkey


A babysitting nightmare, Nick spent most his early life taking apart anything and everything. An innate sense of curiosity meant that nothing was safe.

His studies brought him to a professional career as an Engineer, focusing on military jet engine performance. 

Never one to turn down a new hobby, his passions range from scuba diving to rebuilding car engines.

Kevin Russell

Chief Overanalyzer



Kevin spends most of his time Listening to Inspired Beats and thinking about Ultimate Frisbee. When he isn't covered in sweat or grass stains Kevin enjoys a rousing game of 'Drink the Beer'.

With expertise in Engineering and a passion for Math and Architecture, Kevin probably has more boring books than is healthy to be around. 

Kevin likes beautiful things, but he's also driven to find solutions to Sustainability and Product Longevity. Finding that balance is his pursuit.
