If you've ever used a computer or digital device, you've probably seen the work of type designer Steve Matteson. There's a great interview with him over at MyFonts. One of his most recent projects is the family of fonts for Droid devices. I admire typography artists greatly. I remember one of our most grueling projects in college was to design an entire font. Back in the day you had to do it all by hand. A illustration board, french curves, t-square and pen and ink.
