Here’s our second installment of a new monthly feature in which the BWD team picks out a favorite font for the month. Check out last week’s pick: Cubano.
It’s no secret that BWD loves the Museo family of fonts by artist Jos Buivenga of Arnhem. We’ve use one of the family’s flagship options–Museo Sans–for tons of our projects including Valenches Music Company and School, our own website, NordiDock Concrete Floating Dock Systems, and many others. Museo offers up a perfect taste of class with a modern twist. Its letters’ shapes carry great weight while also remaining delicate and fresh, providing a fantastic modern look over the tired sans serif font options found on so many websites today. It shines equally bright in both headings and blocks of body text.
Even better yet, Museo is one of the fantastic font families offered up by Typekit, one of the leading and first companies to provide beautiful, innovative, and unique fonts in great web formats alongside strict accessibility and usability standards. We use Typekit for almost every single one of our projects, and the results always yield final websites that look fantastic.
There’s Museo regular and Museo Slab as well, both fully mature font options depending on your style. Personally, we’re suckers for slab style fonts, so you’ll find us using this sharp guy wherever we can. We’re also very glad that Buivenga moved on to create it:
When Museo became a succes I researched some possibilities of other versions. First I couldn’t find the right solutions to all Museo Slab’s design hurdles, but about one year later —after a radio interview with Aaron and Matt from RBtL —my interest in Museo Slab got fired up again. Don’t know why, but this time I got it all working.
What do you think? Does this font tickle your design fancy as much as it does ours? Could you see this font making a name–quite literally–for your small business?
