That's actually open for debate, sans-serif is reccommended for 
readability with smaller font-sizes, serif fonts tend to be better 
suited to headings. The Din font in this case is sans-serif hence my 
suggestions. It can completely destroy the impact and purpose of a 
design if the fonts do not suit it.

I wouldn't say the designer has made a mistake with the choice of font 
because she will have seen all kinds of fonts on the web, not every 
designer would know about suitable web fonts for the regular paragraphs 
of text however, especially if they design for other mediums too.
