Webfonts sites (part 1)

sites we like2

Looking at the statistics of Typotheque webfont service led to the discovery of some brilliant websites using our webfonts. Since it has been a while since we posted some sample sites using our webfonts, we are now pleased to highlight some new ones.


Ellen Lupton, author, teacher, critic, curator of contemporary design at Cooper-Hewitt, published a companion to her seminal book Thinking with Type. Because typography is at the center of Ms. Lupton’s work, she pays as much attention to type on the web as in the original book. The website uses Fedra Serif in various styles, including Small Caps, a unique feature of Typotheque webfont service. Her personal site uses the same sets of fonts, and both sites were designed by Christopher Clark.


The International Poster and Graphic Design Festival of Chaumont announced their 2011 programme on their website using Plan Grotesque, using Masonry to emulate the look of printed matter. Website by Lyon-based studio Superscript.


The Vilcek Foundation (established by Slovak born philanthropists Ján and Marica Vilček) aims to raise public awareness of the contributions of immigrants to the sciences, arts, and culture in the United States. Their website uses the screen-optimised version of Fedra Sans for the main text. The website was designed by Abbott Miller of Pentagram.
