The iF Communication Design Award 2012 ceremony honored FontShop International and Edenspiekermann design agency with a golden iF award for their collaboration on the FontFont.com website relaunch. Edenspiekermann's Creative Director Robert Stulle and FontFont Marketing Director Ivo Gabrowitsch accepted the coveted prize on behalf of both teams.
"The golden award is an awesome appreciation of the work of all the people involved. The ambitious, six month project was a big challenge for us", commented project lead Gabrowitsch. "We are very proud to receive one of the world's most important design awards in recognition of our joint effort. The golden statue will remind us every day to keep up the high quality of our work as well as to continue improving our website's usability."
The international jury praised the project with comments such as "maximum simplicity and clarity of the world's largest contemporary font library," "the new content structure and search function allows users to comfortably explore typefaces," and "a useful and wonderful website," and more, they fully recognized that the redesign indeed fulfilled its original intent.
