Jason Santa Maria's Favorite Fonts
Jason Santa Maria
In the second installment of our Designer Spotlight series we shine FontShop’s yellow glow on Jason Santa Maria, founder and principal of Mighty, a Brooklyn-based design studio, and creative director of Typekit.
Creator of highly acclaimed web experiences, Jason’s weapon of choice is typography, which he wields deftly to make complex topics accessible and appealing. This is evident in his work on Typedia, a shared encyclopedia of typefaces; A List Apart, a magazine for people who make websites; and his own award-winning site for which he famously breaks from the traditional blog template, designing each entry separately to fit the subject at hand.
Whether he’s designing web pages or printed pages, Jason’s typographic palette is understated, yet constantly changing. His respect for the tried-and-true classics is clear, but his eye also scans the horizon for interesting new releases. Here are some of his favorite typefaces and the work they helped produce.
