Our fifth Standing-Room Only Lecture will have type designer Matthew Carter coming all the way from Cambridge to discuss his ambitious new Latin superfamily of serif, sans, slab, and rounded typefaces. Commissioned by Morisawa, the Japanese type company, and prepared in collaboration with a team of Japanese designers, Carter’s new Role is the result of years of hard work and international travel—all of which he’ll sum up in about twenty minutes.

Matthew Carter is a type designer and partner at Carter & Cone. His work can be seen on your computer (Georgia and Verdana) and in the New York Times, Boston Globe, and Sports Illustrated, and all over Yale University. He has received just about every possible recognition the graphic design industry has to offer—including a forthcoming exhibit at Katherine Small Gallery.

Standing-Room Only Lectures aim to present short talks about graphic design, typography, and collecting. The lectures are kept to about twenty minutes because—true to its name—the series takes place in our standing-room only gallery. So, wear comfortable shoes and bring a short attention span.
