Top 50 Font Countdown

As a designer, I am always interested in what other fonts people are using and what is new in the world of type.

MyFonts.com offers two different lists for you to find out what is hot in type. They are a pair of Top 50 countdowns, except instead of music, they show what the best selling typefaces are.

The first is a Top-50 list of their best-selling fonts from the previous month. As expected there are a lot of classics in that list including Helvetica, Swiss and Frutiger. While this is interesting it certainly does not get us close to the leading edge of font design.

They have a second list however, Hot New Fonts, that lists the best selling fonts new to MyFonts in the last 50 days. On this list are some fresh offerings from smaller font foundries that you may not have seen.

If you are looking for some fresh faces (typefaces, that is) for your latest project, this is a great place to start.
