Just my Type – Source Sans Pro

Sometimes you have to toot your own horn. Lest it remain untooted.

Tee Hee! This quote is brought to you by a co-worker of mine. It really made me laugh. While I don’t agree with being a person that goes around bragging all the time, I do think that sometimes (especially in your career) you should shine a light on your accomplishments. We gotta celebrate the little victories, no? Ok, to the font!

Source Sans Pro

Source Sans Pro is a sans-serif workhorse! (Don’t know the difference between serif and sans-serif fonts? I have your back!).  With Source Sans Pro you get a whooping 12 styles. It comes in 6 different weights: light, book, normal, semi-bold, bold and ultra-bold +  they each come in regular and italic.

How to Brand Yourself with Source Sans Pro

Source Sans Pro is a bit rounded, so it has an air of playfulness without seeming unprofessional. It’s great for light-hearted brands or any brand that is on the causal side. Since it has so many weights you could use it by itself or you can pair some of the thinner weights with a classic serif (Used Adobe Garmond). This font would be great for a fun blog, or creative websites like those for photographers or make-up artists.
