    I've been struggling with the font for my section headers. In the image below, you'll see the header for my upcoming redesign, followed by a super basic example of what a page section will look like. The fonts used so far are as follows:
    Logo - "ROE" uses Sahara, the rest is League Gothic
    Nav - League Gothic

    What I'm looking for is what font I should use for the section header, in this case "Work". Currently, it's set in Adobe's Source Sans Pro, which I'll be using for my paragraphs. I'm thinking some kind of display font. Given the use of sans-serif so far, I would think some kind of Serif or not-overly-scripty Handwritten. Anyway, any ideas? Bonus points for getting it from Google fonts or fontsquirrel.

    I do, too, but it's time for a redesign. I'll be stashing the old one as a template, maybe for use on another project I'm working.

    So, I've considered Architect's Daughter and Gloria Hallelujah (both on Google Fonts). Anyone have other ideas? I'm thinking about going bigger.

    Damion, maybe? I'm using it on another project and found it works surprisingly well for a scripty font.

    Yeah, it is. It renders surprisingly well even when anti-aliasing isn't enabled, too (most Google fonts fail that acid test.)
