Sites We Like: Cockscomb & Thistle
We talk about food a lot here at Typekit HQ, and we love it when good food and typography align. We spent a while perusing both of these featured websites; we’ll leave it for you to decide whether we were studying their type pairings or their hours of operation.
Small caps, big personality: Cockscomb restaurant uses English Small Caps all over their website in an unusual pairing with Brandon Grotesque, resulting in a distinctive character for the page—warm, confident, and slightly offbeat. (The stern-looking rooster helps, too.)
With a tempting rainbow of cold-pressed juices and other fresh foods to show off, Thistle uses color to its advantage on this website. Headers are in Brandon Grotesque, and body text in Proxima Nova—clean, simple lines that make the page feel spacious and don’t distract from the lovely food photography on display.
That’s it for this week; share sites you like in the comments!
