Matthew Coffin Butterick (born November 15, 1970)[1][4] is an American typographer, lawyer, writer, and computer programmer. He received the 2012 Golden Pen Award from the Legal Writing Institute for his book Typography for Lawyers,[5] which started as a website in 2008[6] based on his experience as a practicing attorney.[7] He has worked for The Font Bureau and founded his own website design company, Atomic Vision (purchased by Red Hat in 1999).[8] Expanding Typography for Lawyers, Butterick published Practical Typography as a "web-based book" in July 2013.[9]

Butterick graduated with a BA in visual and environmental studies from Harvard University.[8] He later earned a JD at the University of California, Los Angeles and was admitted to the State Bar of California in 2007.[10]


Butterick's typeface designs include:

For Font Bureau

  • Wessex (1993), transitional text serif inspired by Bulmer and Caledonia
  • Herald Gothic (1993), a bevelled sans-serif
  • Berlin Sans (1994, part), a flared sans-serif
  • Hermes (1995), a blocky sans-serif loosely inspired by Berthold Block
  • Alix, a typewriter font


Butterick's serif font Equity
Butterick's serif font Equity
  • Equity, an updating of the 1930s body text serif design Ehrhardt.[11] Features grades designed to suit different types of paper and printers, and separate small caps fonts intended for use in Word.[12]
  • Concourse, loosely inspired by Dwiggins' geometric sans-serif design Metro. Features stylistic alternates and small caps.[13]
  • Triplicate, a monospaced slab serif design inspired by typewriter fonts such as the default face used in the IBM Selectric. Essentially a further development of Alix, with more variants including a proportional version and a style designed specifically for displaying code.
  • Advocate, a caps-only slab and sans serif design. Reminiscent of mid-century American college sports team lettering, corporate logos and Bank Gothic. Somewhat resembles an expansion of Herald Gothic.
