It’s our logo stacked. Use it only when and where space is limited.

 

 


Monotone Logos

Use our main logo when possible. These can be used as a substitute, only when absolutely necessary.

Typography

Adelle Sans is used in a very limited way in the product (only in the top navigation and sidebar and titles), and as large, bold headers for marketing material. Please only use Adelle Sans Bold for headlines marketing materials (H1 and H2). Roboto is the workhorse typeface, used for body copy, captions, and everywhere in the UI: data in grids, forms, buttons, and labels.
