Sites We Like: Arsenal and the British Film Institute

Let’s take a hop across the Atlantic for a British twist on this week’s sites we like.

The website for Arsenal features just the right level of intensity for this English football club, keeping energy high while providing clear, direct navigation. Agency Gothic CT, which was licensed from CastleType and is being served by Typekit, brings a bold attitude to the page, while FF Meta offers a soft but confident counterpart in the body text.

Considering the stunning breadth of their collections and outreach initiatives, it’s appropriate that the website for the British Film Institute is such a visual pleasure to explore. Adelle is a great typographic choice here, as it has a lively character that plays strongly off the captivating screenshots without dominating the scene.

That’s it for this week; share sites you like in the comments!
