Designer Profile: Matthew Carter

Matthew Carter is a name you should know. His work is all around us, ever read a webpage or magazine? That is where you'll find it. He has created many well known screen legible fonts for Windows and the Macintosh, the list is a long one and includes Verdana, Georgia, and Tahoma.

He even co-founded two font foundry companies, bitstream and carter&cone inc. (nothing there tho, but you can see a selection of fonts they have released here)

Nice summary of his work here.
