30 Typefaces of Varying Degree in 2007

Typefaces of 2007

I think there’s a saying along the lines that there’s no bad typefaces, just bad designers… MyFonts continues to challenge that phrase with what they’re calling their top 10. It’s a truly dreadful list that makes me wonder what people are thinking that they can produce with some of those fonts. Veer’s list is slightly better, but what surprises me is that all the listings are of one single weight. I’m not sure if that’s intentional or not or speaks to the fact that the seem to be all display fonts. Thankfully 2007 was not a dreadful year in typeface design – at least that’s the opinion of Font Shop – their list saves the day. My bias towards Font Shop comes in that most of their typefaces feel balanced both in the negative space as well as the positive space. There’s one more list that I will add when it finally comes out, but for now all we have is Typographica’s Favorite Fonts of 2006. So when Typographica’s Favorite Fonts of 2007 fonts comes out I’ll change the 2006 link.
