Sindelar wins the iF Design Award in Gold

The iF Design Award Night 2016 in Munich was a memorable and great experience. The impressive BMW Welt was the appropriate and dignified location for the handing over of the iF Design Awards on the 26th of February 2016 in the presence of some 2,000 guests.

Unbelievable, but true: Sindelar strikes again and again. We were honoured by winning the prestigious iF Design Award in Gold for Sindelar, the highly legible text face for news and media design.

Here is the jury’s Gold Statement for Sindelar: »Traditional type design usually has a difficult time in the context of an exciting and colorful design competition. The Sindelar type family, however, has succeeded because, in its smaller point sizes, it offers excellent legibility while only needing minimal space. The Sindelar family includes 18 fonts and 980 lovingly designed glyphs. Besides meeting every criterion for body text, in larger point sizes, the Sindelar family looks well balanced and elegant ... sexy even.«

As you can imagine the mood in our studio is really euphoric and cheerful. Winning one of the world’s most respected design prizes in Gold does not happen every day.

Sindelar succeeds at the German Design Award 2016

Great news from Frankfurt again: We were honoured by winning another well-respected design award for Sindelar last weekend: The German Design Award 2016.

This award is a strong acknowledgement for the work being done at Willerstorfer Font Foundry and a great motivation for designing even more font families of that outstanding quality.

If you happen to be in Frankfurt during the next two weeks: Don’t miss the exhibition of all winning entries in the German Design Award’s category of Excellent Communication Design at the Museum für Angewandte Kunst. The vernissage took place on the 12th of February and the exhibition will be shown from the 13th to the 28th of February 2016.

Sindelar wins a DDC Award in Frankfurt

The success story continues: On the 4th of December at the Industrie- und Handelskammer (the former stock exchange building) in Frankfurt it became official that Sindelar is a winning entry in the renowned design competition Gute Gestaltung 16 (Good Design 16). The design competition is traditionally organised by the DDC (Deutscher Designer Club) and is divided in different categories.


Sindelar succeeded in the Excellent Arts category and expands our trophy collection by the renowned DDC Award. I personally enjoyed the award ceremony and the pre-Christmas atmosphere in Frankfurt a lot.
