Web Font Awards celebrate web typography

The 2011 Web Font Awards have been revealed at the Future of Web Design 2011, with the judges awarding Das Fork (which uses Malabar Pro) first prize, and the Community Choice Winner gong going to Baltimore Fishbowl (Proxima Nova, Proxima Nova Extra Condensed, Chaparral Pro), by Fastspot.

According to judge Daniel Rhatigan, a senior type designer at Monotype Imaging, Monotype launched the Web Font Awards to "give recognition to work that takes advantage of the creative possibilities of working with type on the web, and to encourage designers and developers to see that type can make the web a rich visual experience at the same time as making sites more searchable, accessible, and adaptable". As someone with a passion for type, he said he was delighted to be a speaker at FOWD and weigh in on the shortlisted entries.
