Typography

A consistent use of typography produces clear text, structure and hierarchy.

Web Fonts (Including Web graphics, Video captions and Presentations)

Sans-serif fonts are standard on the web and digital channels because texts are harder to read on a computer screen.

Open Sans is a round and clean font that reads well on all screen sizes so we recommended its use on websites, video content and presentation.
