The new Matthew Carter font is a welcome addition to the sans families.
Matthew Carter is a master of balancing the aesthetic and functional requirements of typeface design. He is one of the few designers in the world to have designed typefaces for fonts in metal, photo, and digital media. His career and contributions literally span the evolution of typeface production in the second half of the 20th Century.
Carter gracefully transitioned from punchcutting apprentice in the Netherlands, to hand-lettering artist and type designer in London, to technical production-drawing observer in Paris, to co-founder of the first independent digital type foundry, Bitstream, in the early ’80s. A decade later, he moved on to establish Carter & Cone with Cherie Cone in Boston.
Carter’s work ranges from the universal (system fonts Verdana and Tahoma) to the proprietary (designs for Time magazine, Apple Computer, Microsoft, Wired magazine and the Walker Art Institute in Minneapolis) – in addition to a remarkable body of modern classics and elegant scripts
