The Type Directors Club of New York awards FontShop for its typography & site design.

The Type Directors Club has awarded us—that is, this website; the thing you’re reading from now—with the TDC Certificate of Typographic Excellence. We’re thrilled that our work receive such high praise. We in turn thank the designers and foundries we represent, without whom, FontShop couldn’t exist. In this our most recent iteration of the site, we’ve worked to place those who make it all possible prominently at the fore.

The FontShop site is set primarily in Xavier Dupré’s FF Yoga Sans, with headlines and subheads in Jörg Hemker’s FF Sero, and obviously, in every other font we carry. View our styleguide for complete typographic info.
