I’m trying to get this posted before Matt walks in the door. He’s been coming into our office lately to work on some new fonts, because this office is a designated typographic zone. When Matt isn’t making fonts he’s filming, experimenting with photography, and racing over midwestern hills and across valleys in his VW. And you can see all of this unfold on his Flickr.
