Typography

Overview

Too many type sizes and styles at once can spoil any layout. A limited set of type variations are supported that work well with each other.

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

Headline Default


Eyebrow Default

This is default BodyText component

Headline Large

Eyebrow Large

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.

Styles

Subdued

You can deemphasize text by making it a lighter shade of grey.

In a paragraph of text, when you have words that need to be deemphasized, subdued text becomes less apparent

A subdued line of copy can be used for disclaimers or helpful notes below form fields

You can only upload photos in jpg, png, and tif formats

Subdued headlines provide extra context to a regular headline

Headline

Italic

You can emphasize text by italicizing it.

In a paragraph of text, when you have words that need to be deemphasized, subdued text becomes less apparent

Bold

We internally call the semibold (600) weight bold. The actual 700 weight is avoided.

You can emphasize text by bolding it.

In a paragraph of text, when you have words that need to be emphasized, bold text becomes more apparent
