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!

Stylin’ stamps

The USPS has long been cranking out stamps designed specifically for collectors. Now they are releasing some with a great eye for design. I have to agree with the Theorist that these Eames stamps are high on the want list!

But I have to say I also dig this short sheet of vintage black cinema posters. I like the typography and boldness of some of the colors.
