Type Designer: Matthew Carter

The noted Type Designer Matthew Carter spoke at the Corcoran Gallery of Art here in DC yesterday where he discussed type and the continuing need to develop new ones that are readable on devices like the iPhone etc.

"Three of Carter's best-known typefaces are Georgia, Tahoma and Verdana because they are all available in Microsoft programs. Microsoft commissioned him to create these fonts in 1994, because the fonts that work well in ink don't necessarily look great on low-resolution computer screens. "
