Our type is bold  and confirdent in headlines, and easy to read in bold copy. It's the visual manifistaion of the Vonage voice - inclusive and empathetic.

Type hierarchy

We use typography to diffrentiate informaiton, create hierarchy, and build visual cohesion. This outlines the basic relationships between typefaces and the levels of information that will be needed in the brand.

Headlines and subheads are always set in Spezia Wide Medium. Body copy is always set in Spezia Normal Regular, with SemiBold for active call-outs and Italic for passive call-outs. Eyebrows and CTAs are all set in caps in Spezia SemiMono SemiBold; and captions annotations, short descriptive copy and specifications are set in Spezia SemiMono Regular.

Always adhere to the correct type hierarchy, and follow the font size and leading relationship.
