Our First Contest Winners

By Shelly Wilson on Tuesday 20th of November 2012

The judges have spoken, and it’s time to congratulate the winners.

It gives us great pleasure to announce the winners of our first-ever typography contest. We’re pleased that so many of you on the beta gave it a go. We received over 40 rebounds, giving the judges plenty to admire and explore. And man you didn’t make it easy on them! There were lots of really lovely designs. And just as exciting ... we got to discover and admire loads of web fonts, and so can you.

So without further ado, here are the winners!
