Although aesthetically pleasing in itself, a new font is now being use perhaps too widely by tech companies.

Designed by Jos Buivenga, Museo is a pleasing font that conveys funkiness and a hip vibe, and therefore, is perhaps best used sparingly.

Many, many companies and designers have latched on to Museo as an easy front-page font of choice. Unlike Helvetica and Arial, which are design staples made to function as background upon which other fonts can stand out, Museo is a nice, ‘fancy’ font that distinguishes itself for special uses. But when everyone uses it (Dell, Seamless, Nestio, and Livestream among others), it just seems, well, a little overused like Comic Sans. Then it loses its power and appeal as a ‘different’ and ‘fun’ font.
