Sites we like: The Twitter Political Index, Pilot and Captain, and Form and Future
August 10, 2012
An election, a travel plan, and the road ahead in this week’s sites we like.
Twitter jumps into the election season with a supplement to more traditional polling: the Twitter Political Index, which measures “the sentiment of Twitter users feelings about the candidates.” Proxima Nova and Proxima Nova Condensed combine with a spare layout and large type for a design that feels presidential but not staid.
Pilot & Captain recalls the golden age of travel with typographically-focused prints and tees. The responsive design puts Brandon Grotesque to the test, using it for headings, subheads, and text alike. The result is retro without veering into kitsch.
That’s all for this week; share sites that you like in the comments, or submit your best work to email@example.com for consideration.
