Typographica: 50 Best fonts of 2011

The long-awaited list of top typefaces of 2011, compiled and annotated by Stephen Coles after consultation with a group of writers, educators, type makers and type users. He observes: As always, the other clear trend is new technology. By the end of 2008, we could finally declare OpenType the default font format. Three years later, in the wake of the @font-face declaration, there are new formats and new substrates as destinations for type design. Yet, in contrast to OpenType's glacial adoption rate, webfonts are poised to take hold quickly, sparked by intelligent delivery platforms (pioneered by Typekit in 2009), early adoption by major foundries (led by FontFont), and screen-specific font design (like Font Bureau's RE series).

Here is that list: Christian Schwartz: Neue Haas Grotesk, Zizou (a revival of Excoffon's Antique Olive) ⦿ Peter Bilak: Julien ⦿ Dieter Hofrichter: Cassia, Cala ⦿ Henrik Kubel: A2 Beckett, Dane, Antwerp, Outsiders ⦿ Hannes von Döhren: Supria Sans ⦿ Berton Hasebe: Alda ⦿ Maximiliano Sproviero: Reina ⦿ Ondrej Jób: Doko ⦿ Travis Kochel: Chartwell ⦿ Rui Abreu: Aria ⦿ Octavio Pardo: Sutturah ⦿ Elena Albertoni: Nouvelle Vague ⦿ Miguel Hernández: Mija ⦿ Cyrus Highsmith: Salvo ⦿ Matthew Butterick: Equity, FB Alix (typewriter typeface modeled after the Prestige typewriter face) ⦿ Sergei Egorov: Neacademia ⦿ José Scaglione, Veronika Burian: Abril ⦿ Mark Simonson: Bookmania (back to the past, past Benguiat's ITC Bookman) ⦿ Kris Sowersby: Calibre ⦿ Edgar Walthert: Agile ⦿ Laura Worthington: Alana ⦿ Gareth Hague: Oban ⦿ Ludwig Übele: FF Tundra ⦿ Alex Sheldon: Detroit ⦿ Georg Seifert: Azuro ⦿ Göran Söderström: Siri ⦿ Ken Barber: Smidgen ⦿ Titus Nemeth: Nassim ⦿ Eduardo Manso: Periódico ⦿ Kevin Allan King, Patrick Griffin: Libertine ⦿ Gerard Unger: Capitolium News 2 ⦿ Craig Eliason: Ambicase Fatface ⦿ Dino dos Santos, Pedro Leal: Acta & Acto ⦿ Max Phillips: FF Spinoza ⦿ Dan Reynolds, Matthew Carter: Carter Sans ⦿ Fernando Mello: FS Pimlico ⦿ Martin Wenzel: Realist ⦿ H&FJ: Ideal Sans ⦿ Nicole Dotin: Elena ⦿ Richard Miller: Swagg ⦿ Hans van Maanen: Naga ⦿ Erica Jung, Ricardo Marcin: Changing ⦿ Apple: Apple Color Emoji.
