Regina Black type specimen site
Regina Black is a display typeface that’s both chunky and elegant, available in two styles from Charles&Thorn and Lost Type. Phaedra Charles and Kelly Thorn commissioned me to translate their static design into a responsive, interactive type specimen website.
Sassy manicules and tuscan-styled cursors? I couldn’t resist the charm of Regina Black’s microsite. Upon entering, I felt like I was catapulted into the 1970s with its warm color palette, and soft chunky type. The interaction here is subtle but a really nice nuanced touch — pay attention to the transforming cursor, it indicates whether something is clickable, or editable text.
Also make sure to take a look at where it has ended up, as collected by Charles&Thorn: Regina Black in Use.
