Ivo Grabowitsch: Best of 2009

Ivo Grabowitsch presents the ten best fonts of 2009 and the honorable mentions. Ivo works at FontShop, so there is a bit of a bias towards FSI fonts, but it is still a good list.

  • Ingeborg by Michael Hochleitner, Typejockeys. Ivo gives this subdued didone family first prize. And to think that this was started in 2008 as a student project at the University of Reading!
  • FF Yoga & FF Yoga Sans, a type system by Xavier Dupré, FontFont.
  • Novel, a serif typeface by Christoph Dunst.
  • PTL Publicala, a sans family by Karl-Heinz Lange and Ole Schäfer from Primetype, a reworking and extension of an old VEB Typoart typeface called Publika done by Lange in the 1980s.
  • FF Milo Serif is a large text family by Mike Abbink and Paul van der Laan, a FontFont product. Readable both on screen and in print.
  • Klimax, a display typeface by Ondrej Jób, Typotheque.
  • Biographer, a script typeface by Angel Koziupa and Alejandro Paul at Sudtipos. Ivo admits that the productivity, creativity and usefulness of the typefaces by this pair has no bounds.
  • Loreto, a small serif family by Pablo Cosgaya and Eduardo Omar Rodríguez Tunni, at Tipo in Argentina. Let's applaud this and all other small x-height typefaces.
  • Luxus Brut, a script typeface by Roland Hörmann, at phospho in Austria.
  • FF Unit Slab, a slab serif by Ivo's boss, Erik Spiekermann, Christian Schwartz, and Kris Sowersby. The robust hit man in the FF Unit mafia.
