Type in Use
Our typographic language can be accomplished by simply using smart choices when it comes to hierarchy and applying emphasis.
Think of Justus primarily as a display font (voice font), used large and for communicating the core message.
Helvetica will support the typographic language by primarily communicating longer lead-ins of information.
And back to Justus again for the reader friendly text.
