This is the first of a series of portraits of what I'm calling 'heroes' of mine. A list of people who inspire and interest me that I think would make great subjects. You can see the list and explanation here: http://billwadman.com/thelist/
For those of you who have ever used the fonts Verdana, or Georgia, or Bell Centennial, or a myriad others, thank Matthew Carter. He's the man who designed them. And yes he still uses the G3 on the right, because apparently the version of Fontographer that the heavies in the business like to use is still OS9 only. Oh, and he was a terribly nice man.
