Design Milk is a site that I visit pretty frequently – they review lots of different types of modern/innovative design from furniture to jewelry.
There are two aspects that I really like about this site – the type and the initial slider on the homepage.
It seems that the slideshow and other parts of the site such as the leaderboard are created using a Google plugin in a CSS stylesheet, that also aids in creating the infinite scroll of content on the page. Each slider of content is wrapped in a div and assigned a class that is then styled, with the aid of the plugin in, according to shape and size and then placed on the home page. I’ve noticed that they update their sliders pretty frequently, so this must be somewhat of a beat to keep up to date.
The font-type is also imported into the page, SSStandard, that has many different versions that are interchanged to create the headers and body type on the page. They also utilize different font-weights to create bolder headers and sidebars on the page. They also use a webkit font smoothy property on all the text on the page. Lastly, they have adjusted all of their text to be responsive in adjusting given the width of the screen. For example, when the window becomes so narrow the site begins to flow into a one column layout and the text adjusts accordingly.
