Sites You Like: SteelCent, 352, & SpeakUp
We love hearing about the sites you’re building, and any other great type you see in the wild. This week, we’re rounding up a few sites you nominated. (Adelle Sans looks to be a favorite!) If you’ve got a favorite type-driven site that hasn’t made our list yet, let us know on Twitter or in the comments.
Steel Cent Paper & Prints
Steel Cent Paper & Prints knows their way around type, with a number of Leitura News‘s ligatures in action here for a slightly dressed-up feel in the already-classy serif. Penna Connected looks beautiful as a subhead here — a little goes a long way with script faces, and this one’s handled well. And look for Adelle Sans in use for navigation throughout. (Thanks to @SteelCent for pointing it out!)
Futura PT makes a bold entrance on the homepage for the web development agency 352, but understated Freight Sans does the heavy lifting here, appearing in all body text and most of the navigation. The overall design is great, with those vivid blue subheads acting as tidy signposts for getting around the well-organized page. (Thanks to @brandmitchell for the nomination!)
Adelle sizes up so nicely, as demonstrated by the headers on SpeakUp — the serifs add a distinctive personality and a nice bit of texture to the page as a whole. Adelle Sans appears in the subheads and navigation here, a natural complement to its serif cousin. (Thanks to @keithbarney for the nomination!)
That’s it for this week’s sites; share more sites you like in the comments!
