A website doesn’t always need a lot of design elements to be considered good. Sometimes great typography alone can get the job done. This article is a showcase of designs that fall into that category. With these sites you won’t see a lot of textures, color, or imagery, but instead a focus on type and layout.

    Great post and selection of sites. Nice to see typography recognized as an important part of web design again. It is often forgotten about.

    I’m not suggesting this article implies that good typography constitutes the absence of other elements, but looking at the examples shown, there are many that seem to think it does.

    Sobriety and sophistication at their best!
    I love these designs, I made a theme for Dotclear with these in mind.
    But I think this list needs Khoi Vinh’s Substraction to be complete:
    A perfect example of typography-oriented, grid-based design.
