‘El Dorado’ is one of three pages for the Lost Worlds Fairs site by The Friends of Mighty. Because IE9 (Oh, the horror! (Just kidding (sort of…)) now supports the .woff font format they decided to explore the possibilities of type on the web. As such, this site is not really presenting information other than to demonstrate new possibilities available to designers.
So, of course its beautiful. Seriously, beautiful. All the text is live and the whole thing has a sense of playfulness and wonder about it. The golds and browns at once seem antiquated and cutting edge. This is a website worth exploring at length, visually and through code browsing. El Dorado is designed by Naz Hamid, principal at Weight Shift.
