    I would have to pick FF Chartwell for being such a clever and unusual use of opentype. It’s also great to see enlarged families like Tisa Sans and Novel Sans rounded (I’m a big fan of large usable families).

    I love Krul!, it feels like soft ancient time in a good balance between current and trendy publishing design.

    Great translation of unique dutch lettering into a distinctive digital typeface. The typeface retains its calligraphic handwritten qualities really well.

    LFS Trim – original, versatile, well-crafted. Can’t wait to use it on something.
