    This site is a design portfolio for Ian Grivois and a place to share his experiments and writing. Aften Screen performs superbly at small sizes on the screen and has a serene and elegant character. Lyon has a familiarity that gives a sense of quiet to bodies of text, perhaps because the tyepface draws upon references to the ubiquitous Times Roman. Lyon also has a distinctive and contemporary flare that does not prevent the reader from getting lost in text and ideas. The reserve of the roman cut joyously lets loose in an exuberant italic. Gibson is a wonderful workhorse typeface that is used here for headlines. The overall texture of the words have a beautiful fit and finish and there is gorgeous subtlety to be found in the reverse curves of the italics. It is a typeface that raises funds for a good cause (Canada’s national design organization) and has an exceptional price point. I am surprised it is not seen more widely on the web. The portfolio slideshow has H&Co’s Sentinel for headings, but that is not a standard part of site’s type palette. Overall, it is thrilling to have such quality web type available for design and to practice how best to use these on a personal site.
