I’m looking for fonts, available from Google Webfonts or Typekit, that would look similar to Avenir.
I’m building a site using Squarespace
My friend told me to use Avenir for headings and shorter texts. Any of these three:
Squarespace does not have Avenir though. Squarespace does have support for Google webfonts and typekit.
Should I use Minion for the text body?
Squarespace does have Minion so I think I can use that one instead.
PS. Similar question:
What are Google Webfonts or Typekit alternatives to Avenir Next Pro?
I don’t think there is a really obvious choice to replace Avenir in Google Fonts.
However, I recently had to ask myself this question, and my answer was and is Lato:
The letters occupy similar amounts of space, the letterforms are in the right ballpark, and the font has a robust set of weights/italics for you to use.
