MADType is Matthew Aaron Desmond Typeface Design. Since 1996, I've specialized in designing unique original retail fonts for both text and display. I also offer custom typeface design services and logo design. Growing up, I was always fascinated with visual design. As a teenager, I was inspired by reading Thrasher and TransWorld Skateboarding magazines. I would redraw the logos of skateboard companies endlessly on my folders at school. After high school, I pursued a career in graphic design with some website design and programming on the side. It was through my exploration of the visual arts that I discovered my love for letterforms and the design of typefaces.
