Communication Arts Awards for FF Tisa Sans, FF Scuba and FF Ernestine

What a way to start 2013! Three of our new FontFonts have been acknowledged in the prestigious Communication Arts Typographic Annual 2013.

Recognizing the great and the good in the world of typography, the latest annual is the third edition and was judged by three typographic experts: Gail Anderson, Jessica Hische and Jesse Ragan. With over 1900 entries to the competition, we were absolutely thrilled to hear that  FF ErnestineFF Scuba and FF Tisa Sans have each been honored best of the year in typeface design. With an acceptance rate of less than 10%, the Communication Arts Typography Competition is a major competition and inclusion is one of the most-coveted awards in the typographic industry.

FF Ernestine

FF Ernestine is the first commercial typeface designed by Nina Stössinger. Born out of the search for a versatile monoline text typeface, it is warm with a serious overtone, feminine with an underlying rigid assurance but above all charmingly sturdy. FF ScubaFelix Braden’s first release through FontFont is FF Scuba. The design combines constructed letters, like an almost rectangular o, with dynamic strokes and other written elements, giving the typeface a lively touch, while still keeping it true to its technical roots. FF Tisa SansLast year, the highly anticipated sans counterpart to Mitja Miklavčič’s popular FF Tisa arrived. FF Tisa Sans has a softer and friendlier feel compared to its serif sister. Whether paired with FF Tisa or used alone, FF Tisa Sans is a perfect choice for branding and editorial projects.

Previous FontFont winners of the Communication Arts Typographic Annual include:

  • Max Phillips’s elegant workhorse, FF Spinoza
  • Jörg Hemker’s matured and balanced, FF Sero
  • Łukasz Dziedzic’s sturdy serif superfamily, FF More
