Sites We Love from 2013

This year, we’ve featured over 100 sites here on this blog, all using Typekit in creative and beautiful ways. It’s a delight to see the great designs that good typography enables. We hope our little showcase here has inspired you in your own work, too.

To finish up the year, here’s a selection of some sites we especially loved from our weekly roundups.

Two Please website

Two Please shows off tempting recipes with luscious photos and some great type: FF Nexus Serif and Sans, both ported over on a license from FontFont, and Brandon Grotesque in the header navigation. (From November 15.)

The website of writer Jack Cheng showcases Chaparral in the body text and Anivers SC in headings. (From February 22.)

Space toads gameplay screenshot

The arcade-inspired Space Toads game uses Typekit fonts throughout the site and in gameplay: Xenara for most of the text on the website, wildcard BD Geminis, and look closely for Mostra Nuova and Peachy Keen. (From September 27.)

Letterboxd website

Made for film buffs, Letterboxd uses Abril Text for most of the copy, with Proxima Nova and Freight Sans for navigational text and tags. (From September 13.)

Trask Industries homepage

A teaser for the upcoming X-Men movie, the Trask Industries website displays headings in Futura PT, with text in Proxima Nova. (From August 16.)

Hiut Denim website

Hiut Denim continues a legacy of denim work that’s lasted for three decades—and their website demonstrates a careful, understated personality, with Calluna in the headings and Nimbus Sans a sans-serif counterpart for body text. (From June 27.)

Screenshot from Daft Punk feature in Pitchfork

Fantastic and loud scrolling visuals reinforce the edgy energy of FF Spinoza and Colfax in Pitchfork’s feature story on Daft Punk. (From June 7.)

The impressive interviews on oneminutewith.com feature insightful questions and solid type choices, with body text in Proxima Nova and interview questions offset in Quatro Slab. (From April 5.)
