This is a fun post that I like to do at the beginning of each year before I start sharing some new favorite fonts. I have already featured a few of them here over the past year as some of my personal favorites. Did you have a favorite font in 2015? Without further ado, here are the most popular font releases in 2015 according to MyFonts.
As usual they waited until the very last moment to put the finishing touches to this list, giving the faces released during the last months of the year a fair chance to make the cut. Unlike most other Best-of-the-Year lists, this one is based on sales. Not simply the total sales volume across the year, as that would give the oldest font families an unfair advantage. They’ve looked at average sales over the year and during the successful introduction period; we made sure popular genres are fairly represented and they included no more than one font family from each foundry.
