Fontlympics Decathlon Wrap Up

A big hand to all the typefaces that participated in the now complete Fontlympics Decathlon. After all the ups and downs, what a surprise to see Jörg Hemker’s FF Sero emerge with the gold! Klavika’s strong lead held well into the second week until Wednesday’s Pull Quote, when FF Sero steadily pushed into first place. And in a tight match-up Thursday, Jackson Cavanaugh’s Alright Sans squeaked past Eric Olson’s Klavika in the Light Italic event, gaining second place by just ten points—only a tenth of a percentage point! So now with great pleasure we award each of our medalists for their best all-around performance, and thank you our readers for your enthusiastic and discriminating eye.

Special thanks to FF Chartwell and NBGrotesk for their impartial reporting during the games.
