Sites We Like: RubyGems & Bourbon

This week, we’re honoring the folks who keep websites running and awesome underneath the chrome — namely, developers. (Who, if these two sites are any evidence, certainly are capable of knowing good type when they see it.)

Maybe you’re already familiar with these tools — or maybe not, but you perked up at the mention of “developers”? Good news, if so: We’re hiring developers right now, so if this sounds like you, please take a look at our open job posting. We’d love to talk to you.


RubyGems website

The gem hosting service for the Ruby community of developers, RubyGems features Aktiv Grotesk on its website — a neutral body typeface that scales up gracefully for headers.


Bourbon website

For more of the front-end work, Bourbon is a library of Sass mixins sure to keep you sane and organized as you build. We like how the rounded edges of Proxima Nova Soft give the site a friendly, approachable feel.

That’s it for this week; share sites (and/or developers) you like in the comments!
