This page outlines the styles and spacing of type on the Practice Centre and how it should be used.


We use Roboto, which is the standard Oranga Tamariki font. 

  • It can be used in regular or bold font weights. 
  • All headings should be Roboto Bold.

Our font stack is for situations where Roboto cannot be used. The fonts are listed in the order they should appear:

  • Roboto
  • Helvetica
  • Arial
  • Sans-serif
