External client projects include the development of the PowerStop brand and environments for American Express and Delta Air Lines, and the transforming of the Association of National Advertisers into the new ANA brand. Additional aviation experience includes brand development for Delta Air Lines at Landor and on both the Saudi Arabian Airlines and South African Airways programs while at Diefenbach-Elkins, now Futurebrand.

Steve Matteson

Brand Perfect Tour – speaker

Creative Type Director

Monotype Imaging

A 1988 graduate of the School of Printing at Rochester Institute of Technology, Steve found his passion for type and typography among the historic collections of books, metal type, type-casting equipment and printing presses. Under the guidance of Professor Archie Provan, Steve completed several dozen typographic and printing projects including a booklet for the Byron G. Culver award and numerous keepsakes. College calligraphy courses with Professor Al Horton and later, workshops with Kris Holmes and Robert Paladino, refined his attention to the details of letterform design. In 1990 Steve was hired by Monotype Typography as a contractor to aid in the production of Microsoft’s first TrueType fonts. Having already spent over two years mastering the hinting algorithms of a similar technology for another company, TrueType was an easy transition. In 1991 Steve opened the California office of Monotype to specialize in the production of TrueType fonts for OEM customers such as Apple, Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft. Working on the technical aspects of type helped fuel Steve’s ambition to design new typefaces. He completed a handwriting design called Andy and a revival of Frederic Goudy’s Truesdell in 1993. These were quickly followed by a screen font design for main frame terminal emulation (Andalé) as well as Blueprint, Fineprint, Binner Gothic and Goudy Ornate. By the time Steve left Monotype to form Ascender Corporation he designed over 20 font families including the user interface fonts for the original Xbox and Windows Vista.

Dennis Michael Dimos

Brand Perfect Tour – speaker

Creative Director

Monotype Imaging

In My Words:

“Success is NOT measured by the accolades of your peers (those are good for A-list party invites). Success is establishing programs that are fluid, dynamic, measurable and adaptive: it’s the convergence of analytics and communication.” Design for the sake of design is vain, egotistical and of little value to the “experience” and the ROI of successful business practices.

Disclaimer:

Ok. Yes. I admit it. I am, in fact, a California native who believes in the theories of chance and chaos – with guidance by the principle of Murphy’s Law. However, I do not wear black or own an espresso machine, and the only Lotus position I know is the drivers side of a ’96 Esprit. On the plus side, I’m typically not an embarrassment at social functions.

For the Record:

I am a Neo-Primitive Constructivist with mild Modernist tendencies.

Typographic Influence (Positive):

Jan Tschichold, Josef Muller-Brockmann, Piet Zwart, April Greiman, Odermatt & Tissi, Ott-Stein, Emil Ruder, Armin Hoffman, Wolfgang Weingart, Herb Lubalin and Paul Rand.

Typographic Influence (Negative):

Pretty much anything De-Constructivist, Default, Fragmented or “MOUSE” derived. “I won’t mention names… you know who you are.”
