BBC does Matthew Carter

Matthew Carter

Bert Vanderveen has put up a 7-minute QuickTime movie of a Matthew Carter interview. It’ll be up till April 10. Do not miss it. I feel like murdering the interviewer.

Interviewer: What do you think of Arial?
Carter: Um. You asked the wrong question. (Laughs) The answer is “Not much”.
Interviewer (VO): Seems my beloved Arial is the boring ol Hush Puppies of typeface.

And to “salvage her reputation”, she comes up with a very unfunny Comic Sans joke. Watch Carter’s reaction to that.
