Matthew Butterick = I’m a writer, designer, programmer, and lawyer. I make design & publishing tools that help writers produce more effective documents with less effort.
My focus is computational typesetting: creating software that automates typographic decisions. Currently, my main project is a document-layout system called Quad.
Previously: I wrote the books Typography for Lawyers, Practical Typography, and Beautiful Racket. I designed the fonts in the MB Type library, including Equity, Concourse, and Triplicate. I created Pollen, a programming language for web publishing, and Archetype, a font-editing app. I’m an experienced print, web, and typographic designer.
