Sites We Like: Break Conference, Confab, & BDConf
We’re thick into conference season over here, and happened to notice a handful of sites using some pretty sweet fonts. Is there some sort of correlation between November conferences and great type?
A brand new conference on design, Break is happening next week over in Belfast. We love the smooth design of this website, with bold white blocks over the deep blue background. Klavika Condensed (and Klavika Display) are stunning header choices, and pair up beautifully with serif Elena. All typefaces are from Process Type Foundry and hosted by Typekit. (Check out our bring-your-own-license hosting option for more information.)
Confab Higher Ed
Confab is a two-day conference covering all aspects of content strategy, and so popular that they organize multiple events throughout the year; next week’s conference in Atlanta focuses on content strategy for higher education institutions. The website features a pairing of two sans serifs: Prenton in an elegant light weight for headlines, with Proxima Nova for body text.
BDConf has already passed us by this year, but the website is still worthy of a quick type study — just look at that bold Futura PT header. It’s balanced nicely by Adobe Garamond in the body text, which is sized large enough that the serif’s character really comes through and adds texture to the page.
That’s it for this week; share sites you like in the comments!
