Red Dot Award: Best of the Best for Sindelar

The Red Dot Award and especially its premium distinction Best of the Best is one of the most respected design awards in the area of Communication Design. Winning this prestigious award for Sindelar is a great honour and a strong acknowledgement for the high quality of type design work done at Willerstorfer Font Foundry.

The international Red Dot jury chose the best entries of the year from a total of 7,451 submissions from 53 countries. There were in total 17 categories in which designers, agencies and companies could submit their projects. This year, the wide range of categories, stretching from Corporate Design and Apps through to Social Responsibility, offered the participants numerous opportunities to demonstrate their talent. However, it is not easy to convince the international panel of experts. Thus, the Red Dot jury only awarded the sought-after Red Dot: Best of the Best - the recognition of the highest level of design quality - 81 times.

Sindelar is among this illustrious group of premium design projects. If you have not had a look at Sindelar so far, convince yourself about its qualities here.

Sindelar webfonts are now available for purchase

I am pleased to announce the release of Sindelar webfonts. In order to retain Sindelar’s high legibility qualities, all webfonts were carefully developed and tested. Thus Sindelar is the ideal text face choice for newspapers and magazines, not only on paper but now on screen as well. Sindelar webfonts are exclusively available here at willerstorfer.com

I Love Typography presents the making of Sindelar

At ilovetypography.com there is a series of articles on the making of fonts. My contribution, Making Fonts: Sindelar, is the most recent article in this series. The article describes the requirements of newspaper typefaces in general and gives an insight into the specific decisions made during the development of Sindelar.

If you want to learn more about Sindelar and its qualities just take a look at the article at I Love Typography. A few years ago, shortly after the release of Acorde, an article on the making of Acorde was published at I Love Typography too.

Acorde/Sindelar Bundles are now available

Sindelar and Acorde complement each other perfectly. Thus many clients are interested in using both type families alongside one another. The Acorde/Sindelar Bundle reflects this demand and merges all 14 styles of Acorde and all 18 styles of Sindelar into an attractive bundle of 32 styles. All styles are fully equipped with a huge character set and numerous OpenType features.

In addition there is also a bundle of the small packages of Acorde and Sindelar available. It consists of four styles of Acorde and four styles of Sindelar. It is more easily affordable than the full bundle but also offers great design possibilities and still decreases the price per style.
