During my second term of MultiMediaArt studies at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences I had to create some posters about famous fonts and/or their creators for typography class. Here are my designs, the first one is my favourite.
Verdana is a humanist sans-serif typeface designed by Matthew Carter for Microsoft Corporation, with hand-hinting done by Thomas Rickner, then at Monotype. Demand for such a typeface was recognized by Virginia Howlett of Microsoft’s typography group. The name “Verdana” is based on a portmanteau of verdant (something green), and Ana (the name of Howlett’s eldest daughter).
