14 impressive font debuts
Fontmatters’ selection of the 14 most impressive designers’ debuts on MyFonts – 2014, 2nd half
Last year we started an initiative aimed at supporting the recognition of young and talented type designers who are at the beginning of their professional path. We feel that it is very important for them to be promoted at every possible level in order to boost their dedication and self-confidence. We meant our selection of fonts by debut designers on MyFonts to be a yearly event but during 2014 we have been surprised with so many impressive works that we published the first half of it in the middle of the year. Now we are happy to announce our choice of font families for the 2nd part of 2014. Enjoy!
By date of publishing:
