Best Selling Fonts

 

According to fonts.com and fontshop.com the following fonts were best sellers in 2009:

Arial •  ITC Franklin Gothic • Benton Sans • FF Meta • FF Din • Eurostile •  Gill Sans • DIN Next • Avenir • Futura • Frutiger • Helvetica • Interstate • Akzidenz Grotesk • Univers • Trade Gothic • the Sans • Neo • SoHo •  ITC Avant Garde Gothic • Rotis • Zapfino • Optima • Estillo • Helvetica Neue • Estilo Script • Waza™ • Olicana Smooth OT • Louisiana • Metroscript OT

There are many more classic fonts than I would have imagined.

If you haven’t visited fontshop.com lately, you have to check out their new tool: type navigator, it helps you figure out what type you need by the specific characteristics of a font. You choose the size of the serif, the general shape, proportions, weight and more, of the characters you want and it matches your choices up with all of the fonts within close match of those characteristics. It’s just another way to search for a font when you’re not sure what you’re looking for, or if you know what you want it to look like, but have no idea what the name of it is.

  1. I am bare impressed with the article I have just read. I wish the author of szstudiodesign.com can continue to provide so much useful information and unforgettable experience to szstudiodesign.com readers. There is not much to say except the following universal truth: Try as you might, you can never run away from your knees. I will be back.

  2. Hi, Good blog you have here. I wanted to let you all know that I think Twitter is going to be one of the better networks because of the fact that it is supported by so many industries. I also think when Twitter shows some of it’s new functions, returning traffic will go up to show the real growth of the network.

    Anyway, I created a site that gives away great resources for Twitter that are 100% free, so come and visit and don’t be a stranger.

    Keep up the great work!
