Matthew Carter Font Designer

I'm trying to solve a mystery regarding the origin of the bitmap font that later became Tahoma. Does anyone know how to reach Matthew Carter, the man who designed Tahoma, Bell Centennial, Verdana and many other fonts? If so, please forward him my email address or send me his contact information. Thank you. Sincerely, Tom Quinn

Typeface Comparison: Web Fonts... Tahoma vs. Verdana (IMAGE)


Ok, so it is that inevitable time in every brand's life when it must be made into a website.

In this case the printed materials would use Gotham Narrow as a body copy font. The question is, which is more like Gotham Narrow: Tahoma or Verdana, and why?

I have adjusted size and tracking to get all three into the same basic space and configuration. Please forgive any little issues.

I am eagerly awaiting interesting comparative notes. Thanks in advance!
