    The Pioneering Women of American Architecture website is a collection of in-depth profiles of women who have made important contributions to American architecture. Designed by Yay Brigade, the website is set in Utopia in tight combination with JAF Facit and Lora. Utopia is used for the headings and display sizes; Facit is for the UI elements, info graphics and small notes; Lora for the body text. The typefaces – particularly Utopia and JAF Facit – share similar attributes such as somewhat narrow proportions and slightly squarish bowls. The typography of the website is a good example of how several type families are combined effectively. This website was nominated for a Webby Award 2018.

    We worked with the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation to create a website that celebrates women who were trailblazers in the field of architecture. The site’s navigation allows readers to browse the women’s profiles alphabetically, chronologically, and pictorially. Each profile—written by a leading architectural scholar—features an in-depth essay alongside bibliographical information and archival photographs. It was important for us treat the typography with a very considered “print sensibility.” We even wrote a few lines of JavaScript to prevent pesky (typographic) widows from ruining it all. — yaybrigade.com/work
