About Me

Hot Metal to Mobile Screen

I am an expert typographer and type designer – from the roots of our trade to the most current applications of type on screen. Type is the fundamental element of all written communication and I have the expertise to help you formulate the most accurate message for your brand or product.


If you’re a fan of my Open Sans typeface family be sure to check out Open Serif – the ultimate companion for the Web’s most popular typeface! https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/matteson-typographics/open-serif/

Bespoke & Licensed Typefaces

Through my employer, Monotype, I have produced typefaces for Microsoft, Google, Charles Schwab, Nextel, Rogers, Toyota, American Heart Association and many others. Feel free to contact me directly (or through Monotype) to create a steadfast typographic system for your company’s brand.
