Let's take a look at this interesting interaction design concept of a transit tracker by Matteo Mapelli. As I am starting to see a trend with designers using the font: Montserrat; it's a great readable font especially on apps.

You can search wine by type of food, type of wine or even scan wines to understand more about that particular type.

I have to admit something, I never enjoyed the official sites from movies. They usually go with a simple (and boring) site with a trailer. Maybe too simple?
