About

Introduction

Introduction

Hello, I’m Matthew Rechs, a consultant and coach in the creative industries. I work across all fields of digital media, and I have a speciality in the area of digital type.

I partner with graphic and type designers to coach them on their business skills. I’m also an expert font consultant to corporations looking for expertise in licensing fonts, custom font design, and other type projects.

I worked on the Creative Cloud team at Adobe, and until 2019 I was the head of Adobe Type and Typekit. Before that, I spent nearly 20 years working in digital agencies small and large, in roles ranging from software engineer to CTO and EVP Business Development.

With my new venture Business Letters LLC, I’m looking to put that to experience to work for my clients. I’m focused on helping clients in two ways:

  1. Helping creative people succeed by improving their business skills, and

  2. Helping businesses get better results as they work with designers and creative markets.

After more than 25 years in the creative industries, I’m proud of what I’ve learned and the incredibly diverse set of relationships I’ve created. I’m looking forward to sharing that with you, and finding out what we can learn by working together.
