    Good selection. Some of these sites really inspire me.
    I think especially of Squarespace with the Proxima Nova font and Information Architects that is really minimalistic but very beautiful. Thank you.

    Great collection. Can never have enough examples of strong typography in web design. Spent a long time reading through some of Information Architect`s articles when redesigning my site in order to best rethink how to display body copy, not just headlines.

    I think Design Week Portland is my favorite, not only because of the typography but the nice interaction while scrolling.
