    Thought this was a great article and showcases some great use of typography. I agree with you on how type plays an important role within the design of a site and can set the tone and feel for how the users connect with what you have produced. I like all the examples you have included in your collection but the one that stands out for me is the Skullcandy site. I really like the minimal use of typography and how it still stands out, has impact and does not get lost with the images. I also really like the the user journey and the techniques used as you scroll down. It gives life to the site and the typography, giving it that wow factor. Great article and I look forward to more like this from yourself.
