The specimen for IBM Plex is as close to a printed specimen as you can get in digital. It has those feelings of bespoke design, collectability – something special. Quality content and bold large typography.

LLineto's specimens follow a similar templated approach and closely mimicking a printed specimen. This is all about showing the different weights over titles and long form. What is particularly good is the very detailed technical information at the bottom of the page. Detailed waterfall design patterns with a full glyph table.
