This is the 34th installment of my monthly feature on Typewolf where I share my favorite type-driven websites from the previous month and then write a little about the typographic details behind the designs. You can check out last month’s post for October here .
I almost didn’t feature this site on Typewolf because the site’s typography ranges from borderline unreadable to completely unreadable due to the fact that all the type is set on top of photos. That being said, I still really love this design. I think it could be argued that the bold, colorful photography is meant to overpower the type, as that is what this agency specializes in. Either way, it makes a huge visual impact. Ed Benguiat’s gorgeousITC Tiffany is used throughout in medium and heavy weights.

I’ve noticed that the condensed cuts ofGaramond have been making a bit of a comeback lately. Before switching over toMyriad in the early 2000s, Apple had been using a customized version of Garamond condensed as their main branding face since the early 1980s. I think this gives the typeface a retro charm that is appealing to designers who fondly recall the vintage Apple ads. This site definitely evokes that retro feeling, while the addition of Radim Peško’sFugue Mono adds a modern touch to the design.
