Yale Environment 360 is an online magazine offering opinion, analysis, reporting, and debate on global environmental issues.
Yale Environment 360 is the first site featured on The List of Design powered by the excellent up-and-comer Craft CMS. It is fitting that Yale Environment 360 would be the first. The site is content heavy which is a staple for Craft CMS and it handles this site beautifully.
The font choices are a pairing of Moderat and Ashbury, with Moderat for the headers and Ashbury for the body copy. These type choices seem to be a pair made in heaven. Digging into one of the articles is where the type choices really shine, showcasing an elegance and form not many online magazines can or do pull-off.
The site is driven by typography with minimal photos interspersed throughout. The idea is that a visitor will immerse themselves into an article to understand more about our environment and the trouble it has currently.
