This week and next our Fontlympic coverage turns to the Typographic Decathlon, beginning today with the Headline event. Five contenders test their ability in a series of challenges ranging from the sprint—to the long running text.
Competing for the top spots are Jackson Cavanaugh’s Alright Sans, Eric Olson’s Klavika, Michael Abbink’s FF Milo, Christian Schwartz’s Neue Haas Grotesk, and Jörg Hemker’s FF Sero. As each face is put through its paces, one will emerge as the best performer all-around.
That’s where you come in.
Using your typographic eye and best judgment, select the face that best completes the challenge.
Polls will remain open until midnight tonight, Pacific. Responses will be tallied and points awarded daily. The next event begins here in 24 hours.
