    The Drum is a “global media platform and the biggest marketing website in Europe”. They just redesigned the site using FF Marselis Slab for headlines combined with Avenir Next for text.

    Some time ago they also redesigned their magazine and said this about their type choices:

    A key part of this is the introduction of a new typeface – [FF] Marselis – from [FontFont] Monotype, which brings an interesting flair to The Drum’s refreshed appearance, and will feature alongside the typeface Avenir Next.

    “[Avenir Next] is a geometric sans serif that still manages to be friendly on the eyes,” explained Monotype’s UK type director Nadine Chahine. "Together, these two typefaces create a balance of design: comfort for the readers’ eyes in long passages of text, and a winsome appeal for the headlines.”
