Matthew Carter at MyFonts

MyFonts has published an interview with Matthew Carter, a man who learned design and tipography by punchcutting, showing an incredibly diverse work.

He has in recent years designed Verdana and Georgia for Microsoft; these fonts are tuned to be extremely legible even at very small sizes on the screen.
Georgia and Verdana were designed at a time when screen resolution was not as good as it is now. It hasn’t advanced all that much, but the rendering has improved a lot thanks to anti-aliasing and stuff. Verdana and Georgia in the mid-1990s were all about binary bitmaps: every pixel was on or off, black or white.
These fonts are the ones we are using for a project for a client company with over one hundred years old in the market, at the studio.
