Typography Tuesday: Adam Larson’s A for the AIGA

In 2010, the AIGA Boston honored type designer Matthew Carter’s work and career with a silent auction highlighted by posters of original letter designs by 13 local design luminaries, including Adam Larson.

Legendary type designer Matthew Carter was the sixth recipient of the AIGA Boston Fellow Award.  Matthew was part of a small group of ambitious and visionary people who left Linotype to found Bitstream in 1981 as the world’s first independent digital type foundry. Prior to Bitstream, customers bought type from their equipment vendor. Linotype fonts worked only on Linotype machines. Bitstream’s founders applied both actual and artificial intelligence in creating digital fonts that could work on any platform.
