The Type Directors Club has just posted the first announcement of its annual type design competition, TDC² 2012. The jury, chaired by Maxim Zhukov, includes Roger Black, Matthew Carter, Paul Shaw, and Erik Spiekermann. The deadline for submission is Friday, 16 December 2011.

Boston, MA and Elk Grove Village, IL -- August 19, 2010 -- The Font Bureau, Inc. and Ascender Corporation today announced Webtype.com, a new venture to serve web designers and developers with publication-quality fonts to improve the typography and readability of websites. The service is available now at http://www.Webtype.com with a variety of custom web font options to accommodate websites of all sizes.

In the past, technical issues limited how fonts could be used on websites, but a lot has changed in the last couple years. Web designers have probably heard about new options for using fonts other than the handful of “web-safe” choices like Verdana and Georgia in their web designs.
