Lato

Lato comes with 10 styles that goes from thin all the way to ultra-bold. Created by Lukasz Dziedzic, the letters in Lato have this unique curve that you won’t be able to see unless you zoom it to a larger size. This is not to say that Lato doesn’t look good in smaller font sizes– it will just look so much more interesting if you use it on a bigger scale.

PT Sans
