Matthew Wyne

After falling in love with typography, then cocktails, Matthew Wyne has created a career built on the intersection of these two art forms. He studied type design at the Cooper Union under Jean François Porchez and Sumner Stone, then undertook a three year research project to learn how cocktails have been represented typographically since their birth in the late 1600s. His blog, Letters & Liquor, explores the drinks that changed the way we define the term “cocktail” and each one is lettered in period-inspired fashion. He lives in San Francisco where he draws, writes, shakes and stirs on a daily (or nightly) basis.
