Here’s another roundup of my favorite websites that I (re-)discovered in the recent months. As in the last post, all of these pages are special to me because of their creative design and/or great content. If this year’s roundup had a theme, it would probably be “bold”.
I recently went through my slides about webapp accessibility and gave them a little update and expanded some sections with newfound knowledge. I wanted to share the slides here as well to make them more accessible to everyone who’s looking for them. So here you go!
We already launched in December last year but I didn’t blog about it, so here’s a belated celebration: Klima.com is live! It’s a website that Jonas, co-founder and CPO of Klima, designed and I had the pleasure of implementing. It accompanies the launch of the Klima apps on iOS and Android and provides more information about our product, the company behind it, and general climate news.
I’ve finally found the motivation to compile a list of my favorite websites! These following pages are very cool™ because they either look super nice, offer great content or do both. And they don’t feature the current trends that make the web worse: Offensive advertising, affiliate-based opinion making, obsessive user tracking. Let’s get started.
About two years after the last re-design I decided to give it another go and optimize my site’s design again. This time I paid special attention to the selection of fonts in order to achieve consistent and readable typography. You’ll also notice that most of the decorating elements are gone in order to “let the letters speak” for themselves.
Before (Tea Time) and now (Silver Ratio).
Because it’s not exactly the golden ratio, I named this theme “Silver Ratio”. Its code is available on GitHub.
P.S.: In hindsight I realized that my layout and font choices (and maybe the whole idea of the re-design) was greatly inspired by the blog of Jan Heuermann! Thanks for that, Jan.
