At the end of each year (or thereabout), all sorts of best-of lists pop up everywhere. Many of them remind me of elderberries (i.e. they stink). Not so the best fonts list, of course. Here is a collection of various Best Fonts of 2010 lists, which I’ll try to keep updated as more lists are published.
- MyFonts Top Fonts of 2010
based on sales numbers at myfonts.com
- FontShop Best Fonts of 2010
has some interesting categories for their superlative fonts
- Veer Staff Picks 2010
- Ascender Top 10 Innovative Fonts of 2010
- Typefacts’ Die Besten Fonts 2010
in German, use Google Translate
- YouWorkForThem Top 10 Fonts of 2010
has only fonts from the YouWorkForThem foundry
Personally, I find Origins and Despeinada pretty cool.
