And the Winners Are

It’s that time of year again. The Type Directors club (TDC) has just announced its 2009 typeface awards, with the winners being awarded the Certificate of Typographic Excellence in Type Design. Here are a several of my favorites:

Cassius from Mathieu Réguer:



Malabar from Dan Reynolds:

The Malabar family will be available for purchase pretty soon. Initially available in Regular, Bold, and Heavy; each with their respective Italics. Devanagari support to come later. Dan is also the author of the type blog typeoff. And this article’s masthead is set in Malabar Heavy Italic. [twitter]

Orbe by Rui abreu:

Following up on National’s success last year, Kris Sowersby collects another two statues for two custom typefaces, Hardys & Serrano.

All winning entries will be published in Typography 30. If you don’t have your copy of Typography 29 (with last year’s winners, and lots, lots more), then I recommend it.

Congratulations to all the winners. However, I am surprised by the omission of Skolar. I think (if it was entered) it would have come away with an award. Perhaps next year?

Which are your favourites?
