Legendary Type Designer Matthew Carter


In this fast-paced digital world we are literally bombarded with design, advertisements, and graphics more than ever. One influential yet often overlooked aspect of design and graphic art is type design. If you work in design or commercial art you probably already understand the importance of type design and typography. Type design or fonts can convey emotion, meaning, mood, or can be incredibly practical like simply making legibility and comprehension easier.

One of the legends of type design is Matthew Carter. He is the designer behind such famous fonts as Georgia and Verdana. In the below TED Talk video he discusses his career in type design. From analog beginnings, transitioning all the way into the digital world. The talk is fascinating as you begin to understand the level of expertise, knowledge, and skill involved in creating something we all use on a daily basis yet nearly never acknowledge.
