Matthew Carter

After finding the quote from my last post i wanted to check out Matthew Carter who is an English type designer who created Verdana, Georgia, Helvetica compressed and Helvetica Greek. While i was looking at his work i realised that i have neglected to look at the classic fonts (oops) Ive been focusing on new, quirky fonts that are all very intricate and different. So Over the next while i will look into a few of the classic typefaces.

While researching i found that Carter focused on improving the legibility of fonts and he mainly designs for Microsoft and Apple computers. And Verdana and Georgia were first made to be viewed on a computer screen.
