Pairing

Our Typography uses semantic naming to pair sizes which helps with the consistency in overall application as well as the visual hierarchy and space management.

This pairing method is ideal for text components that are directly or semi-directly related or grouped together in a card or section.

Pairing Examples

Use same size for sibling items.

Deviation

In some cases where you need higher contrast between Headline and Body, Headline can size up one or body can size down one. Do not deviate up with body text, the body text and headline size would be the same creating ineffective typographical hierarchy.

Deviation Examples


Variations

Styles

Subdued

Subdued headlines provide extra context to a regular headline

Italic
