Although I began designing my site with Avenir Light, that is a Monotype font that is not available for free as a webfont. Instead I used Google Fonts to filter the class and style of the font I was looking for, a sans serif, thin or lightweight font with medium character spacing.

The font I found was Lato, which is great since it comes in ten weights (I’m using Light 300) and is free for web use – excellent! Many thanks for the thoroughness and generosity of Lato’s font designer, Lukasz Dziedzik.
