I Love Typography: Best of 2008

Best of 2008, as proclaimed by iLT (italics are nominating blurbs by iLT):

  • Compendium: Difficult to imagine a best-of list with no showing from Ale Paul. This one is no exception. Ale released several great typefaces in 2008, but my favourite has to be Compendium. A fluid, beautifully crafted script, made all the more wonderful with a large helping of OpenType wizardry.
  • KrisSowersby--NewzaldBook-2008.png by Kris Sowersby, a TDC winner for his sans National: His serif Newzald is already one of my favourite serifs. Has everything you could ever want from a text face. I'm still waiting for it to be taken up by a newspaper.
  • Marat: A TDC 2008 winner, and one of my all-time favourite a's from Ludwig Übele.
  • Megalopolis Extra: from the very talented Frenchman, Jack Usine. And it is free.
  • Skolar: Although it hasn't been released yet, David Brezina's text typeface Skolar is already looking pretty exceptional. Skolar is slated for release in 2009 (probably March/April) through Type Together as a family of six weights (regular, semibold, bold, and their respective italics); and will support most of the Euro-American languages, and come replete with numerous typographhic niceties.
  • Museo: The hugely successful Museo, from Jos Buivenga. Available in 5 weights, three of which are free.
  • Blaktur: Ken Barber's simple yet in your typeface letterforms, wrapped up in some really smart OpenType features. If you're looking for a ‘blackletter' display typeface that won't be lost in the crowd, then look no further.
  • Facebuster: A very bold slab serif with minuscule slit counters - from Silas Dilworth.
  • Tomate: Voluptuous, fun, and very sexy - from Ramiro Espinoza.
  • Soho: From Seb Lester, a very talented illustrator and type designer who is finally starting to get some of the recognition he deserves. Both Soho and Soho Gothic are exceptional typefaces. Be sure to take a look at the Soho PDF specimen.
  • FF Utility: Lukas Schneider's sans, FF Utility is one of the best you're likely to see. A sans with real warmth and personality.
