The Drumbeat site is designed on a typographic grid:

the vertical grid is set on a text line-height of 20px.

in the horizontal I am working with alternating 20px/60px columns; 12 columns of 60px separated by 20px gutters.

FontFont Meta

The main title font is Meta Bold. The great news is that FF Meta is now available to license through Typekit for use in web sites: [1] meaning we could license the font for use in the site (no image-based titles!)
