In this interview, 2010 MacArthur Fellow Matthew Carter discusses the evolution of his craft as a master type designer from the printed page to the computer screen. His typefaces are read wherever the Latin alphabet is in use and are also employed extensively in languages based in Greek and Cyrillic alphabets. His recent work has focused on developing legible fonts for computer screens, including the small screens of handheld devices. Carter continues to respond to new developments in communication technology with a thoroughly modern sensibility. This resource is part of the MacArthur Fellows Program Collection.
