Creative Review Type Competition 2005

Creative Review in the UK organized a type competition for 2005 designs, judged by Bruno Maag of Dalton Maag, David Wakefield and Jason Smith of FontSmith. The winners:

  • Display Single: Bello (Underware). Second place: Monitor (Rian Hughes, Device), Landing Strip (Adam Graveley).
  • Display Family: Plume (Bruno Maag & Ron Carpenter). Second place: Kari (Neil Summerour, Positype).
  • Text Family: FF Nexus (Martin Majoor). Second place: FF Maiola (Veronika Burian), Auto (Underware), Calibri (Lucas De Groot, Fontfabrik), Ficus (Malou Verlomme), Arlt (Alejandro Lo Celso, PampaType).
  • Custom Single: No winner. Second place: UOS Titling (Shelley Winters and Blast).
  • Custom Family: Channel 4 (Jason Smith, Fontsmith). Second place: Sheffield (John Powner, Atelier Works and Jeremy Tankard), Deréon (Jean-François Porchez), Mencken (Jean-François Porchez), Dream (Veronika Burian), Super Veloz (Andreu Balius and Alex Trochut).
  • Revival/Extension Family: Andrade (Dino dos Santos, DSType), Second place: Lapture (Tim Ahrens, Just Another Foundry).
  • Non-Latin Family: Nour & Patria designed (Hrant Papazian, The Microfoundry).
  • Ornamental: No Winners. Second place: Trust Me 97 (Stuart Price and Chris Jeffreys, The Chase).
The results made a big stink in the type community, with Kris Sowersby, Andreas Seidel, John Hudson and others arguing that judges should not be allowed to submit entries to competitions. Note that Bruno Maag and Jason Smith, both judges, won awards.
