Featured Site: The new New York Times Opinion Pages
September 23, 2010
This week, the New York Times’ relaunched their Opinion Pages. The new minimal layout distinguishes the Opinion Pages from the rest of the paper, while the flexible template showcases the accompanying illustrations. The entire look exudes the confidence and authority one has come to expect from the Times; and, more importantly, it does a great service to the excellent editorial content within.
Perhaps our favorite part of the redesign is the classy new typography, courtesy of Typekit and the Times’ custom version of Cheltenham. We worked hard to ensure that this historic font would render beautifully and consistently across a wide range of browsers and devices. Gone are the days when a publication had to compromise on fonts for the web; with Typekit, the Times can look just as good online as they do in print.
Update: Cheltenham has also been rolled out on the New York Times Best Sellers list.
We’re working closely with the Times and other enterprise customers to deliver custom fonts to the web, and we will be sharing more examples from those partnerships soon. Stay tuned!
