I'm currently completing a dissertation on typography and how it has been influenced though it's different mediums.
I was wondering if anybody has any good stories or things i should research on this. At the moment, these are some of the things i have talked about..
Matthew Carter. and how the screen demanded rethinking for typography. (Focussed on Verdana, Georgia) and Bell Centennial for the phone books.
Does anybody know how i can contact Matthew Carter?

Has anybody here designed typefaces using any strict restrictions, or had to design type for unusal mediums? If so it would be great if i could ask you a few questions about your designs.
