Although it primarily uses a webfont version of the much derided “Frankenfont”, I can’t help but love the general application of typography throughout the new Google Maps interface. A clear hierarchy and good use of the appropriate weights of the typeface give the application a tidy appearance. The designers clearly did their best with the materials they were given, and I think it’s one of the few examples of when a good design manages to overcome its decisions in the font-choosing department.
