    Just to add another point of view here. I personally love the choice of typeface and not mixing too many styles / weights.

    And what does 'not designed' mean? Design is mainly about problem solving and I presume the goal for the site is to make it easy for readers to consume the information.

    Readability beats trying to go with something that visually might look trendy.

    Listen to this short interview by Erik Spiekermann about the sins of designers trying to use type to make something look good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sw0syzCeH4Q (enable english captions).

    You have other facets you can tweak to create a personal brand, such as tone of voice or copy.

    In this example, Nuro made it clear that he works hard (but secretly he wants to let the world know he's a designer with a great ass), leaving it a bit ambiguous for the reader.

    Not so corporate in my view.
