Matthew Carter’s Top Ten (minus one) Catalogue


In 2014, Matthew Carter was invited by an art magazine to write about his ten favorite things. It was a fine and interesting article, but it had two problems: First, it was mostly unillustrated, and, second, graphic designers tend not to read art magazines. We were largely unaware that one of the favorite figures of our field was sharing something about himself. This catalogue (and our exhibition) aim to right these wrongs. Here one can read the original column and see the things described (minus one). With just nine of his ten favorite things, we can begin to understand what makes Matthew Carter not just a well-­rounded designer, but a well-rounded person.
