In this latest showcase post, we look at some more websites with outstanding typographic design.
Australian-German designer Brent Riddell makes excellent use of the highly distinctive typeface Adso, a contemporary gothic script font by Bureau des Affaires Typographiques . Pairing the font with an electric yellow breathes contempory life into a design that is edgy, distinctive, exciting and bold.
Penny Black is an exclusive property buying agency, based in London. They have chosen Serifa, Adrian Frutiger’s wonderful slab serif. The light weight used here sets off the display heading very nicely indeed.
I’m using this awesome web font to render the Twitter, Flickr and Projects icons in the header of this new design. Cheap, well designed and easy to use, and it completely removes the need for small icons.

Brilliant bookmarklet which tells you which web-font in your font-stack you’re actually seeing
