Impressive Typography Sites

Typography is one of the very important aspects to consider when designing a website. Well-written content finds its actual place and praise only then when it is placed properly in readable and as well as attractive format. Web typography can embrace everything from calligraphy to digital type — it is not only about using an array of fonts, but also focusing on the 'where' and 'why' when choosing a particular font's size and color. Here are some of many examples of beautiful, interesting and inspiring typography-related sites out there. Please share with us other sites you've found typo-riffic!

    Even though most of the sites posted here for the use of their amazing typography, Kari Jobe, Elan Snowboards and Arqandgraph would have to be my favorite.

    Thanks for sharing :)

    I’m trying to decide on ways to incorporate more typography in my upcoming redesign.
