Sites we like: AboutDesign, 2pxBorder, Penguin Creative, and Brooklyn Beta

Showing off great work and making something you love in this week’s sites we like.

AboutDesign is an Amsterdam agency working on branding, editorial, and web design. FF Netto’s slightly condensed width is efficient for setting longer headlines, while its round terminals and geometric shape make for a friendly, but organized look.

Over in New Zealand, 2pxBorder specializes in web design and development. The mostly black and white site plays homage to print designs of yore, with Museo Slab filling in for display and FF Meta Serif for text. Be sure to resize your browser’s window to appreciate the responsive design.

Penguin Creative, based out of Nashville, Tennessee, makes excellent use of Proxima Nova across headlines and body text. The light weight of Proxima Nova is especially graceful in the airy, colorful layout.

And last but not least, next week marks the return of Brooklyn Beta, a small, friendly web conference in our favorite borough. Quatro Slab’s hefty weight plays wonderfully off Alternate Gothic’s narrow letterforms.

That’s it for this week; share sites that you like in the comments, or submit suggestions for future posts to gallery@typekit.com.

  1. Really love the 2pxBorder site. Their subtle use of typography, beautiful illustrations and courage to do a long scrolling page is rather splendid and conveys a great tone. Jealous!
