Type awards

If you don’t enjoy typography or type geekery discussion, please move along, there’s nothing to see here.

Since the Quills are no more, I am going to spend my “award show tracking energy” to keeping up with the Type Directors Club annual competition. I have to say that I am in 100% agreement with the Superfamily winners this year! Awesome. Though I’m not a fan of the Display category winner, but then display fonts never really rank that high with me. And I am really digging the lowercase ‘y’ of Fondo.

I am, however, going to have to find a way to justify purchasing Tiina, just so I can use the italic face. Mmmmm, mmmm… that is one great slant!

  1. you dig the ‘y’? really? italic Tiina? c’mon, man! you definitely like some ugly fonts. and i’m not just saying that because i know you 🙂 i think what you’re really lookin for is the swell Papyrus font. yeah, that’s the one for you.
