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.«
