In the past few years, the Poppins font has been very popular. It is used by the giant Airbnb company. The Poppins is a perfect alternative to Open-sans or Roboto fonts because it brings warmth with its slightly rounded shapes.
This font is perfect for long text content or for titles in capital letters.
Eczar is a perfect font for titles. Its visual impact and its original shape bring a dynamic touch to a project. We do not recommend using it for content as this would not be very readable.
