I believe I am not the only one who notices this slight change, but still a wise one from Upwork's end.
So, first of all, designers and web artisans... why '"Gotham" and not "Roboto" or "Open Sans"?
If we were to be optimistic, everything would have done better than the initial, fat font (I don't remember exactly the name, but it seems that it's still used for the forums layout).A little research shows that most people, including me, put "Open Sans" at top of the list.

Nevertheless, "Gotham" comes on 9: http://screencast.com/t/XTsRI73Ov2
All in all, maybe it's a big step for Upwork, as success comes with detail. Any thoughts?
Certainly this is not the best font to use, but a much better alternative than the initial one.
It seems to be "Gotham Medium", instead of "Gotham Book". Maybe, they will start convincing their designers to converge to a single path and not split testing (A/B testing for "big" companies, just not good, how they explain they got that big?).
Well, Google has "Arial" as base font, surprisingly. Was really shocked about this, first time when I see this.
Probably, there is a conspiration about the web fonts in general. Why Google isn't using any of them? Alright, I guess we digressed a bit.
