    Nice collection! Especially love how Amazee Labs uses different fonts on the same page to make a statement.

    Hi Gisele, another article filled with inspiration! the two sites in this list I really love are InfinVision and MumMade. The choice of fonts these websites have used seem to be perfect for the look and feel of their website. Great collection. Thanks for sharing.

    Great stuff. I think that ones choice in font either makes or breaks a site. Although, it may seem that simple, it is one of the decisions that need to be made early in the design process.

    Nice job for putting this together, some of these look beautiful, some good and some pretty average but that’s all about opinions when it comes to typography.

    Congratulations on a great effort, merry xmas from London

    Jealous and inspired by all of these examples! Thank you. It’s weird tho’ – I feel like I’m seeing Bradbury Thompsen-esque printwork on the web as I scroll through these. It’s nice to see the design sensibilities of print finally playing nice with the digital page.

    There are some very nice examples of design and layout here, but I think the majority of them are actually poor web design because of the way they were implemented. Most are using only background images so the usability is non-existent if the images aren’t loading or are disabled.
