I’ve had a nagging feeling that the trend towards increasingly large typography and simpler layouts was just that, a trend. I now think it’s a possibly a logical necessity.
I’ve read Oliver Reichenstein’s essay “The web is 95% typography” on the state of the web as it was back when he wrote it in 2006 several times and over the last year or two, I’ve been working on responsive sites for our clients at Offroadcode as well as spending a lot of time and effort following and keeping up to date as best I can with trends and techniques and I’m being drawn towards what feels an inevitable conclusion for web design.

I’m not sure how old this website is, but I do know that at this moment it is really producing some quality work; as a typography site it certainly only piques the interests of a select few, but the content is presented well enough to give it a look even if the subject matter isn’t your bag.
Now that I’m seeing it linked to all over the place, I figure I better jump on that bandwagon so that all of my loyal readers (anyone?!?) can take a look.
True? Probably pretty close; it seems to me that a lot of what we do revolves around disseminating information and excellent typography is the only real way to achieve this.
