Sites We Like: We Don’t Need DST, Nearly Impossible, & Mission Pie

In this week’s sites we like, we’re getting into the spirit of autumn—the season of transitions, gatherings, and pie. What’s not to love?

We Don't Need Daylight Savings Time website

We Don’t Need Daylight Savings Time draws you in with a mesmerizing spinning globe animation and clean Proxima Nova text, neatly laying out the rationale behind doing away with the biannual time shift. In the meantime, those of us in the US are reminded to change our clocks back an hour this weekend.

Nearly Impossible website

Autumn being a traditional time of gatherings, we couldn’t resist noting the Nearly Impossible conference, which is happening next week in New York and aims to bring together “people who make and sell physical products.” Body text is set in lighthearted PT Sans, and we also enjoyed seeing Latinotype’s Trend Sans in the headers.

Mission Pie website

So, now we’ve got an extra hour and some new friends; let’s make the most of this situation and get some pie. (Perhaps the official baked good of autumn.) Mission Pie serves up delicious options, both savory and sweet—and uses Crete Rounded on their site to boot.

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