Rick Griffith is a graphic designer, letterpress printer, occasional writer. His work is an erudite exploration of language, history, politics, science, and ethics. He founded MATTER, which, over the last two decades, has grown into an ambidextrous design consultancy, print shop, workshop, and retail bookstore. His work has been celebrated by the Type Directors Club, Print Magazine, Dwell, and AIGA. Rick has designed and curated three exhibits on typography and letterpress printing. Rick’s true orientation is towards self-reliance, disruption, creative compassion, and independent thought. For most of us, life is long—for lots of reasons, we might begin to act like it.
