How to Change Your Fonts on Journo Portfolio

One of greatest things about Journo Portfolio is how easy it is to create a unique writing portfolio. After you choose a theme, you get to customize other details such as font styles. Changing your font is simple and helps create a portfolio that is unique to you. We’re going to take a look at some examples from existing Journo Portfolio users, and then we’ll show you how to change the font in your portfolio.

At first glance, J.N. Paquet’s portfolio is clean and easy to read. J.N. has chosen to keep his fonts simple, using Raleway for both the header and body font. Raleway is a sans-serif font that is sleek and modern, which makes it easy on the eyes. Choosing to keep the header and body fonts the same is a nice trick for anyone who wants a minimalist look or just isn’t confident about pairing different fonts together.

Ashley Lauretta - Journo Portfolio User

For her portfolio, Ashley Lauretta has paired two different fonts together. Ashley has chosen Source Sans Pro for the header font and Source Serif Pro for the body font. The fonts are different enough that they are complementary to each other, adding visual interest and creativity to her portfolio.

Matt Scott - Journo Portfolio User

Matt Scott has chosen to use Lato for both his header and body font, but with a twist. Matt has changed the headers to have a weight (meaning the thickness of the font) of 900, so they look very bold. The body has a weight of 300, which just a bit thinner than usual. These customizations make the headlines of Matt’s articles stand out, while the body text is light and easy to read.
