Fontlympic Decathlon: Weight

Our Fontlympic Decathlon continues, but first a look at the scores from yesterday’s Kern Competition:

When designing a face, adding weight can cause serious side effects. A cool, stern text face easily grows chummy or gets compositionally out of hand. Great pains are therefore taken to ensure that a typeface maintains a consistent tone across weights. Select from the below competitors the face that best carries its weight, while sustaining the feel for which it’s known.

Polls close at midnight (Pacific). The next event in our Typographic Decathlon continues here tomorrow at 1pm.
