The latest annual is the fifth edition and 140 winners were picked from over 1,800 entries. This year’s judges included John Clark, Juan Carlos Pagan and Laura Worthington.

Jakob Runge’s typeface FF Franziska started life as his Master’s thesis at Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Kiel, Germany.  A hybrid of a serif and slab serif, it is discreet, functional and modern yet has a real playful personality and is great for body text.

Originally drawn as a graduation project, FF Dora was designed by editorial and book designer Slávka Pauliková. It is a strong-willed type family consisting of five styles: Regular, Italic, Bold, Bold Italic and Display. Based on a detailed study of todays handwriting styles it focuses on transforming handwritten shapes into a serif text typeface.
