Duquesne Incline Current Web Design
I have focused on the most common fonts: Helvetica and PT Sans. Also, the colors are focused on green with having different shades for gradation. The logo shows the long history of the incline, thus is crucial to include.
PT Sans Bold
PT Sans Regular
Helvetica is one of the most basic fonts. It is used for body texts throughout the website.
