Our Favorite Typefaces of 2016

Typographica delighted in publishing their annual of favorite type of 2016 in July. As per Stephen Coles: Typographic trends have a lifespan that doesn’t correspond to the calendar year, and many popular typefaces remain in style long after they hit the market. This time around Sibylle Hagmann reviewed the beautiful Rosart designed by Katharina Köhler. We hope that her serif family will be a big hit, gaining exposure long after 2017.
