 I said this to Mel, but I'll reiterate here: even if the site wasn't small
 - the 4.6 font stack is a UI stack - it's definitely not meant for copy.
 As Mel said, there are conversations happening about moving on from Open
 Sans in .org, but until then, the

 in the design handbook] remain the law of the land ;)

 I do have other small feedback here, looking at the
 [https://2016.barcelona.wordcamp.org/ live implementation] vs the mockups
 Mel posted here:


 - The font stack definitely needs to change back to Open Sans.
 - The default colors should be WordPress colors. I believe this was a
 lapse in implementation, but worth commenting. Base color should probably
 be the [https://make.wordpress.org/design/handbook/foundations/colors/
 WordPress Blue from our color palette]
 - The form button isn't aligned properly, and it includes a rogue {{{»}}}
 character. The color on the button is also off
 - The form layout could likely be optimized on larger screens and break
 down to a full width form on narrow screens, something like:


 Aside from this, this is a tremendous step forward. It's a gorgeous design
 that fits the WordPress brand perfectly! :)
