Top fonts of 2010

January 11, 2011 Posted by workingdesign in Typography

What’s hot in type for both the web and print? Plenty! Type retailer Fontshop has issued its list of the top fonts for the past year. The list shows a beautiful variety of types. A characteristic they all share is generously sized x-heights and short ascenders and descenders. That’s because so much reading is now done directly on a computer screen and that design approach is easily readable.

What puts a font at the top? We contacted Fontshop and they said they use a variety of criteria ranging from sales to typographic quality, innovative appearance and impact on type design.
