Please Don't:

  • Add positive letter spacing to any text styling. It almost always negatively impacts readability

  • Use Title Case. It complicates things and leads to mistakes & exceptions.

  • Use all lowercase.

  • Use multiple coloured words to make certain parts of a sentence stand out.

    • If you really need to color text, try sticking to a single color (preferably our GeckoGreen as it is the most associated with our brand).

    • Avoid colouring text when possible to avoid potential accessibility issues.

  • Set body text without appropriate line height.

    • Too little (100%) or too much (200%) isn’t ideal.

    • Try sticking with 150% (our recommendation) as it works well for both readability and visual appeal.

  • Use ALLCAPS text as it impact readability negatively.
