Print and digital
Our brand font is GT Walsheim Pro. Walsheim is a clean and modern sans serif font that has a friendly, distinct character. The geometric letterforms in GT Walsheim Pro complement the shapes in our logo and fit naturally into our visual identity. Our brand typeface is available in a number of weights, but be sure to use only Bold and Regular.
In print applications, type should only be set in black or white, depending on the background color. In web applications, headline type can be set in DXC Yellow when it is used on a black background.

In some instances, GT Walsheim Pro will not be available for use, such as in Microsoft Office applications. In these cases, use the Arial type family as the default font.
Leading, tracking and kerning
You don’t want your typesetting to be crowded or too loose, so be sure to pay attention to the leading, tracking and kerning settings.
Leading is the space between lines of text. Adjust the leading according to the font size you are using.
Tracking is the amount of space between groups of letters. The GT Walsheim Pro font is designed with appropriate letter-spacing, so there is no need to use anything other than the auto tracking option.
Kerning is the space between any two letters, and should only be adjusted in large headlines when legibility is a concern.
How to use typography
