Ou font of choice is Proxima Nova.  Are you wondering what that font looks like? You are looking at it right now.  We use this font as the default font on our home web page and in most printed documents.  Proxima Nova bridges the gap between typefaces like Futura and Akzidenz Grotesk. The result is a hybrid that combines modern proportions with a geometric appearance. Originally released in 1994 as Proxima Sans (now discontinued), the font was expanded from the original six fonts (three weights with italics) into a full-featured and versatile family of 42 fonts (seven weights in three widths with italics). In the last few years, Proxima Nova has become one of the most popular web fonts, in use on thousands of websites around the world.
