Typeface sizes for print have been chosen based on readability and accessibility for the audience. Minimum sizes have been set and should be adhered to.
|Style||Weight||Size||Leading||Space after||Space before||Colour||Left indent||1st line indent|
|Intro copy||Light||18pt||24pt||3pt||2pt||Dark Grey||n/a||n/a|
|Body copy||Light||12pt||15pt||2pt||1pt||Dark Grey||n/a||n/a|
# Setting and justification
Set Titillium as sentence case only (with an initial capital letter). Type should be ranged left with a ragged right hand margin.
Leading is variable for each type style and is dependent on weight as well as case. The table on this page presents a quick reference for type attributes for the internal pages of a standard A4 or A5 brochure.
At larger sizes, leading may be reduced to ensure that ascenders and descenders never touch.
Space between headings and body copy should be set on a case-by-case basis. As sizes of text vary, it is not possible to set a fixed space.
A starting point should be half a line of body copy so ascenders and descenders are kept apart.
# Tracking and kerning
Kerning for body copy should always be set to “Optical”. When used at larger sizes kerning should be reduced, and in particular if using an all-cap headline, individual kerning of letters will be required.
