Rick Griffith is a graphic designer, master letterpress printer, and passionate advocate for design. His work is an erudite exploration of language, history, politics, science, music, and ethics. Rick was born and raised in Southeast London and immigrated to the U.S. in the late ‘80s. Over the last two decades, his Denver-based design practice with partner Debra Johnson at MATTER in Denver, CO has grown into an ambidextrous design consultancy, print shop, workshop, and retail bookstore. His true orientation is towards self-reliance, disruption, creative compassion, and independent thought.
Made possible through the generous support of the Carmen Morton Christensen Endowment, the Department of Art & Art History, and the College of Fine Arts.
