In the name of further tootelage of one’s own horn…
Typographica‘s ’Our Favorite Fonts of 2005‘ list is out! Growing interest has pushed the list to two parts this year, which is pretty sharp. This time I chose Porchez Typofonderies’s Deréon. My little piece is in part 1, but be sure to keep an eye out for part 2.
Our Favorite Fonts is an excellent resource for quickly putting your finger on the pulse of type design and get a quick look at some of the most interesting and notable fonts released during the year. Plus, the authors are type and graphic designers, which gives this list a bit more depth and character than a straight-up specimen list. Lots of great work this year.
I thought about picking my favorite font that I didn’t choose, but there are just too many. Zingha and FF Maiola struck me at first glance, but each one gets more interesting the more I look at them.
