Matthew Carter Receives 2011 National Design Award for Lifetime Achievement

“If influence can be measured in the quantity of typewritten words produced, then the most powerful wordmonger in history may be Matthew Carter,” writes Julie Lasky in her New York Times article. Carter was honored with the 2011 National Design Award for Lifetime Achievement on Thursday at the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York City. Congrats Matthew, for an extraordinary year of awards!
