Sites we like: The Web Font Awards Finalists

The Web Font Awards finalists were selected yesterday at the Future of Web Design conference. The sites are, as expected, supremely talented examples of web typography. But we’re especially proud that all of the finalists trust Typekit to deliver their fonts to the web.

Markert Immobilien is a German real estate website, sporting a classy black design with FF DIN. FF DIN is especially nice when set large and in all caps, as this site capably demonstrates.

Quipsologies chronicles curious and notable events in the design industry. Three different fonts coalesce into a uniquely interesting design: Skolar serves as body text; P22 Underground adorns headings (in the Petite Caps) and tiny sidebar text; while Coquette provides the whimsical numbers for each post. The combination is irresistible.

And the winner is: Design made in Germany, previously featured in Sites we like for its excellent use of FF DIN Round and spectacular illustrations.

    Magnificent quality from Germany!

  2. Kudos to Monotype for having the courage to host an open webfont competition and then give all three awards to entrants who use their competitor’s product!

    By the way, DIN is as an acronym, spelled with caps.
