    Nice selections of type typography. In the last time I see more site use a different soluzions based on good font. The font is not one element of the background, but is an integral part of the project.

    Some nice examples, thanks. However, I do think that the old design principal of only using one or two headline typefaces and one body typeface is in danger of becoming extinct- which could lead to some very messy designs indeed!

    Nice selection.

    However, I think Goodness isnt that good. In some, it’s the graphics that make the difference e.g. Headset Print, Planilandia.

    Is that heirarcy of content? or heirarchy of content?

  • Rob Matwiejczyk

    Great uses of typography. Any chance we can get a list of fonts used throughout? I’ve used firebug to get a few, but in the case of image-based text (such as the cider font) it’s impossible to find out!
