Pixelspread [Matt McInerney]

Graphic designer currently working at Pentagram Design in New York. He graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design, and is originally from Western Massachusetts. At the Typesites page, Matt McInerney looks at sites that have great typographic design. He created Raleway (2009, a free hairline sans; the Google Web Fonts typeface Raleway Dots (2012) is by Brenda Gallo, Matt McInerney, Rodrigo Fuenzalida and Pablo Impallari; see here for a complete extension of Raleway between 2010-2013 by Matt McInerney, Pablo Impallari and Rodrigo Fuenzalida), New Alphabet (2008), an octagonal font based on Wim Crouwel's New Alphabet, using FontStruct. (For a commercial version of New Alphabet, check Architype New Alphabet (The Foundry). He also made Pentagrid (2009, on a 5x5 grid; +Pentagrid v2, +Pentagrid Alphabet), Dotserif, and Neuescreen, typefaces that are in the mold of New Alphabet.

Orbitron (2009) is a great free futuristic sans family published at The League of Movable Type: it is a geometric sans related to both Eurostile and Bank Gothic. Romina Vespasiano made a great specimen poster for Orbitron in 2012.

Allerta (+Stencil) (2010) is an open source typeface designed for use in signage. Allerta was designed to be easily and quickly read from a distance. Each letter exploits the most unique aspects of that individual letter so that each character can be easily distinguished from any other.
