Typography

Typography is the foundational building block of the phila.gov design. Fonts that are readable, yet bold encompass the brand.

Sans-serifs were chosen because they are easier to read on screens, and are adaptable across platforms and browsers.

You can download Montserrat and Open Sans from Google Webfonts, or you can download them directly using the links below.

Montserrat

Open Sans

Open Sans is used for body type.

Times New Roman

Implementation

To establish page hierarchy for content heavy sites, all headings and paragraph tags have specific styling applied to them so pages flow visually from topic to detail.
