About us

Riding Type is about smart design, simple illustration and carefully chosen typography. Based in the greater New York City area, we are a boutique studio specializing in #letterpress wedding invitations, #save-the-date invites and #personal stationary.

Riding Type puts out unique solutions that showcase our clients’ personalities. We believe in effective problem solving and design that works. We’ve been there, done that, and want to make your day-to-day or landmark event creative, stress free and fun.

Riding Type’s creative directors, Kendal and Matt Grady, are a husband-and-wife team who are married to design.

Kendal is a brainy, left-handed creative with impeccable taste. She holds a Master of Fine Arts in Drawing and is Riding Type’s go-to illustrator and #calligraphy artist. Kendal plays a major role in client relationships and delights in finding the perfect concept for new designs.

Matt has experience designing for clients in the cosmetics and beauty industry. He earned a MFA in Graphic Design from the University of Florida, where he met Kendal. Matt’s turn-ons are hand-drawn letters, clean layouts and tossing a frisbee on the beach.
