‘An ingenious hack’ – FF Chartwell wins again!

FF Chartwell, by Travis Kochel truly is on a winning streak at the moment.

Following the recent win at the Information is Beautiful Awards in September, on Tuesday evening Fast Company announced the 11 winners of its inaugural Innovation by Design Awards.

Innovation by Design Awards

With over 1,700 entries, 56 finalists and an all-star judge list that included the likes of David Butler, Nicholas Felton, and Lisa Strausfeld, we were over the moon to hear that FF Chartwell had won the Innovation by Design prize for 2-D Design.

Judge and Facebook product designer Nicholas Felton said, “FF Chartwell is an ingenious hack. This easy-to-use tool could disrupt all manner of chart-making programs, thanks to a clever font system that turns chains of numbers into elegant charts. Tweaking a graph is as simple as changing a number.”

In our category we were up against the likes of NASA and the award-winning design and technology studio Stamen, so we are absolutely delighted to have won. Well done, Travis and the FontFont Type Team!
