Typography

This page outlines the styles and spacing of type on the Oranga Tamariki website and how it should be used.

Typeface

We use Roboto, which is the standard Oranga Tamariki font. 

  • It can be used in regular, bold or black (heavy) font weights 
  • Heading 1 and Heading 2 use Roboto Black
  • All other headings use Roboto Bold.

Our font stack is for situations where Roboto cannot be used. The fonts are listed in the order they should appear:

  • Roboto
  • Helvetica
  • Arial
  • sans-serif
