Webfont Wednesday: I Love Web FontFonts

This has certainly been an exciting week in Webfonts here at FontShop. Not only did we we get giddy at the WOFF support announcement for Lion, but we also rode the buzz around Azuro Web into the final hours of its 90% off promotion. The discount may be over, but you can still purchase this typeface, optimized to achieve the best possible legibility on screen.

With visions of beautifully designed websites dancing in our heads, we decided to launch a new series here on the blog called “Webfont Wednesday.” Each week we’ll highlight a site using Web FontFonts in this space. Though our staff is spotting them out in the wilds of the internet, please feel free to share your designs in the comments section, on Twitter using hashtag #WebfontWeds, or on our Facebook page.

This week we’d like to point out an I Love Typography post on the recent TYPO Berlin conference. Not only was it wonderful to read Dan Reynolds’ detailed synopsis of the presentations, but what a gorgeous presentation using FF Scala Sans Web for the headlines and the FF Scala Web for the body.

Now if i could just see those lovely webfonts in my Google Reader feed…

    Do you know what font is in use for the “I Love Typography” heading on that particular ILT post?

    Ashley, I believe ILT used Dante for that heading.

    Ivan is right. Dante it is. Though I don’t recall where the ornament is from. Adobe Minion, perhaps.
