Matthew Kaufman

I’m a mature student on the BA (Hons) course. I’ve worked on the fringes of Graphic Design since 2008. I have contributed to projects for the BBC, Vodafone, Mercedes-Benz and plenty more. After a decade of freelancing, at 34 I decided to train as a fully-fledged Graphic Designer.

Architectural Typography

I created a typeface based on an iconic piece of architecture: The Point in Milton Keynes, the UK’s first multiplex cinema. Operating between 1985–2015, this red neon pyramidal ziggurat inspired me to make an angular font (‘Midsummer’), cut through with a sense of playfulness and just touch of nostalgia.
