Sites We Like: MatternCo, Interactive Things, & Webknit
This week, we’re shining the spotlight on a few of the people who help to make the web a beautiful place with thoughtful visual design, great interactions, and exceptional typography.
MatternCo is the homepage for Sarah Mattern’s creative studio, and it’s full of little touches — like the bits of Bouffant here and there — that go a long way to demonstrate her knack for good design. Body text is in lovely FF Tisa, and headers are in Brandon Grotesque.
The Interactive Things website shows a great example of FF Netto in use; this is a flexible font that looks great in headers, but we especially love the tidy look of the body text here. For a nice bit of serif contrast, Teimer gets dropped in for subheads.
Brandon Grotesque remains a popular choice among Typekit customers, and sites like Webknit showcase why: it’s an enormously flexible typeface that can carry the text for a whole website, and it adds just enough personality without feeling overdone.
That’s it for this week; share sites you like in the comments!
