Typeface Tournament [Final Four]

After an eventful weekend, we have our Final Four in the 2013 Typeface Tournament.  One notable finalist, Interstate, had a nail-biter of a game against top seeded Frutiger.  After a completely shocking and dominating performance over Optima yesterday, Interstate advances to its first Final Four appearance in twenty years to face off against Bembo later this week.  Ninth seeded Calibri held on against Akzidenz Grotesk, a typeface that has strung together a couple of exciting last second wins in its previous match-ups.  The overall number one seed Helvetica had no problem disposing of Officina despite a horrific kerning accident that ultimately resulted in a broken descender.  A relatively close match, Helvetica rallied around their loss to pull away and take a large lead into the final minutes.
