Typeface designer Steve Matteson ’88 (printing) spent March 11-16 in the RIT Cary Graphic Arts Collection reading room researching type designer Frederic Goudy for the first Cary Collection/Monotype Imaging Fellowship. In 1990, Matteson began work at Monotype Corp. contributing to the creation of the Windows 3.1x core True Type fonts Arial, Times New Roman and Courier New. He has designed close to 50 fonts—including Droid, Convection, Arimo, Chicory, Titanium, Truesdale and Mayberry—and his work is featured in several computer operating systems and embedded in game consoles, cell phones and other electronic devices.
