What’s Your Favorite Font?

What’s your favorite font? It’s possible that it was created by designer Matthew Carter.

Carter invented several famous typefaces including Bell Centennial, Verdana, and Georgia. During the TED 2014 conference, he gave a talk and shared several stories from a career that spans more than three decades.

We’ve embedded the full presentation in the video above. According to the TED blog, “Carter think of himself as an industrial designer whose medium is type. When one designs a font, one deals closely with the technology that renders it, Carter explains, whether that’s a mechanical printing press or a central processing unit.” What do you think?
