Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces

If I had the time I’d be a font geek. One of the Create Cloud features I enjoy most is the access to fonts.

Well, maybe I am a font geek after all. I enjoyed this talk by the man who designed Verdana.

In this Ted Talk, Michael Carter talks about the design of fonts to both achieve a purpose and address the limits of the available technology (eg for phone books or early PC screens).
