For just under 20 years, Rick Griffith has sought clarity about art and communication through the broad discipline of design. His projects & commercial works and projects have been cited in several national and international resources including TDC, AIGA 365, Print, Dwell, and Good Magazine. He has works published by Rotovision in the UK and Lawrence King and Rockport in the US.
His and MATTER’s work is included in the AIGA National Design Archives, the Denver Art Museum’s Design permanent collection, The Butler Library of Rare Books and Manuscripts at Columbia University, and the Tweed Museum of Art at the University of Minnesota, Duluth.
During the last 15 years, he has taught graphic design and typography for the University of Colorado, Denver, The Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, and most recently, The University of Denver. He serves as lecturer and panelist for conferences and presents frequently on either his method for teaching and practicing as a designer/typographer or the model of professional practice, leadership, and constant experimentation of the studio and type laboratory called MATTER.
