Sites we like: Michael James Milton, York Associates, DePauw University
Some lesser seen fonts and a classic pairing in this week’s sites we like.
Michael James Milton produces pocket squares handcrafted in San Francisco. The humanist sans serif, Open Sans, makes for warm body text, while the slab serif, Kulturista, provides a muscular counterpoint. (Oh, and the pocket squares are lovely, too.)
York Associates help their customers communicate professionally anywhere on the globe. ARS Maquette (available from ARS Type and transferrable to your Typekit account) is equally successful as very large headline text and small print. Paired with a monochromatic color palette, the effect is confident and impartial.
DePauw University opts for a classy look, with Adobe Caslon and Futura PT. Carol Twombly’s Caslon revival is traditional but not stuffy; in its company, the light weight of Futura PT is both elegant and academic.
That’s all for this week; we’ll be back with more sites we like next week.
