Open Sans is so ubiquitous that you’re not a real designer if you haven’t heard of it. But if you actually aren’t, congrats! Now you know about one of the most versatile fonts of the decade.
I use the word ‘versatile’ because it looks equally professional at all sizes, and moreover, it’s available in all weights, from Light to Ultra-Bold. And even if you specify an arbitrary weight (with CSS, for instance), it still looks great.
It is used by Google, Mozilla, WordPress, and a few billion other sites. For example:
And it looks just as awesome on documents as well.Here goes:
Everywhere. Especially the light version.
So, howzzat? Have you used Open Sans elsewhere? Do share your experience (and a screenshot too)!
