If you absolutely can not gain access to Raleway use Verdana (Regular and Bold) as a last resort. Verdana is a system font that is available on all PC and Mac systems and web safe.
When possible, online applications should use a font replacement technique that allows Raleway to be displayed as a web font for hfeadings, subheads, and call to actions. Open Sans will be the font choice for all paragraph styles. Verdana should be used for web materials only when a font replacement technique for Raleway is absolutely not possible.
Sentence case is always preferred for long from body copy. Sentence case means only the first letter of the first word in a series of words is capitalized. This keeps our brand more conversational as well as improves legibility. It is recommended that all caps is used for headlines, subheads, and calls-to-action when it’s written in the context of a sentence.
Leading is the space between lines of type. When type is below 16pt., leading should be 6 points greater than the type size. Above 16pt., leading should be 5 points greater than the type size.
Tracking is the space between letters. Never set type with less than 0 tracking. Letters should never touch each other.
It is important that the width of a column of type is optimal for legibility. Column widths greater than 70 characters or less than 20 should be avoided.
SECONDARY FONT USAGE
Paragraph text in web applications should be set to Open Sans, all body copy in print and/or digital applications should also be set in Open Sans.
MICROSOFT OFFICE APPLICATIONS
The font Calibri is the preferred font when working with Microsoft Office applications when licensed fonts are not available.
All weights of Raleway and Open Sans are available as downloads from Google fonts.
The Independent Learning presentation theme is available in two sizes: the traditional 4:3 format, and the modern 16:9 format. It is important to know ahead of time how the final presentation will be displayed. Widescreen formats such as 16×9 are becoming more popular for projectors, TVs, and computer monitors, but it is best to know for certain what type of screen will be used. The slides will appear with black bars on the top and bottom or the sides if the aspect ratio of the presentation differs from that of the screen on which it is presented.
