Good typography helps an audience not only navigate but understand complex written information. Great typography does this while conveying a brands personality and values. Our brand typefaces have been selected because of their design flexibility, as well as their simple elegance.

Primary typeface


Akzidenz-Grotesk Pro

Our primary brand typeface for all communications is Akzidenz-Grotesk Pro. This choice of typeface has been selected to strike a balance between simple elegance, neutrality and consistent legibility. It is available in a range of weights, making it ideal for all our communications.

Due to licensing restrictions, font files cannot be circulated. Licensing requires a purchase to be made per design workstation. If internal or external resources require access to font files, contact your regional marketing team.


Type basics


Tracking refers to uniformly increasing or decreasing the horizontal spacing between a range of characters. Careful application of tracking will improve the overall legibility of a block of copy.


Leading refers to the space between adjacent lines of type. Careful application of leading will improve the overall legibility of a block of copy.


Hierarchy refers to the approach of organising information into tiers to help guide the reader into the material, as well as signalling the importance of certain pieces of information.

Campaign display typeface


Akzidenz-Grotesk Pro Medium Condensed

Akzidenz-Grotesk Pro Medium Condensed is a unique cut of our primary brand typeface. It’s taller, narrower letterforms pack a punch and can be used to create bold, expressive layouts that stand out against the core Interface brand. Medium Condensed should be used with special consideration, exclusively for product campaigns and marketing initiatives that relate to Interface’s environmental credentials. This includes campaigns such as Love Carbon and the related Embodied Beauty Collection. It must only be used for headlines and hero messaging.
