Colorado Designer at Jeremiah Shoaf Design LLC Joined over 4 years ago via an invitation from Asher S.
From the post:
”The fonts featured here aren’t necessarily brutalist themselves—they just seem to be used frequently in this style of design, however you want to describe it.”
That was actually on the shortlist. Any kind of extended sans for that matter...
As far as I know, MailChimp doesn’t verify the address you put in that field. The newsletter you saw probably just deleted the address field. I’ve received some MailChimp newsletters that just put a city or country as the address.
That said, without a physical address you would be in violation of MailChimp’s policies and the CAN-SPAM Act. Your account would probably be suspended if you got caught.
Better to just get a PO Box which is what I did.
Minimal, one-page design with a nice typeface.

Most of this content was directly copied-and-pasted from my site Typewolf. Just wanted to say I had nothing to do with this post...
Thanks for the kind words. :)
I’ll try to feature this coming up on Typewolf!
Love the aesthetic. You should use an apostrophe in “I’ll” rather than a straight quote: option + shift + ]
You should look into Statamic—v2 was just released. Tons of features and can work for pretty big sites.
I think system fonts can be a good idea in cases where site speed/performance is of utmost importance. San Francisco and Roboto are definitely a step up from Arial and Georgia.
But from a branding perspective I think they will appear generic and pretty soon just feel like default options. So it’s a tradeoff between creating a strong brand that makes an emotional impression vs pure site speed.
My prediction is that it will become trendy for awhile and then people will get sick of it after seeing every site using San Francisco. :)
