In a world that has gone bonkers for custom web type, it’s great to find a beautiful example of web design using good old-fashioned web-safe fonts. Everything on this site (short of the logo) is live text rendered in standard fonts—that means it’ll look generally the same on every computer. I love custom web type as much as the next internet geek, but sometimes it’s good to stick to the basics.
