This is a really fun specimen. Whirly Birdie is a display typeface inspired by 1950's American advertising.That aesthetic inspires some excellent illustration style with some feature rich interactive UI elements. The animated icons are particularly interesting.
The companion to NewsSans, NewsSerif's specimen is a simple presentation of type testers opening with a carousel of example designs. An often neglected, but in this case well done, is the buying options. Buying fonts can be confusing but this simple design makes things easy.
Sometimes a simple headline, a carousel showing some examples of usage, and a bunch of minimal type testers is just enough for a specimen. This example from Identity Letters for Werksatz shows what can be done with just a few simple elements.
