Typography

Use these typefaces across print and digital mediums for products, marketing materials, and documents. Contact design@opengov.com for access to our corporate fonts.

Proxima Nova stylistically straddles the gap between typefaces like Futura and Akzidenz Grotesk. The result is a hybrid combining humanistic proportions with a geometric appearance that is highly readible at small sizes. It carries a contemporary touch and is suitable for anything from headlines to text.

FF Meta Serif Pro is the most influential sans serif of the digital revolution. It is ideally suited for editorial and publishing, logo, branding and creative industries, small text as well as web and screen design. It can be used as a secondary typeface to add contrast to the design.

YWFT Ultramagnetic is a made to feel soft yet gothic and bold. It can be used as an emphasis for Voice Words or short headlines that need extra emphasis.

Verdana is created specifically to address the legibility challenges on computer screens with its generous width and spacing. Use Verdana for word document, slide presentation, email, or other mediums where other fonts are not available.

Icons

OpenGovicons is our standard pictogram of web-related icons representing actions and objects. The icons are precisely prepared in monotone and duotone. It is created with an emphasis on simplicity and recognizability. The icons are available in vector and font formats.

Mission

Imagine a world in which officials and citizens can easily access government financial data. They chart trends, pull data points, run reports, and see the revenue and expenditures that support the many services that touch our lives and communities. Increased access connects citizens with senior staff and elected leaders. It improves trust and dialogue between cities and citizens. And better tools save time and improve decision-making by putting critical data at the fingertips of key decision-makers.

That world now exists. Applying the latest technologies, we create web applications that visualize, analyze, and share government financial data. Governments of all types and sizes can increase internal productivity and build bridges to their communities. By building a platform that is easy-to-use, affordable, and powerful, we are taking "open data" to new heights.
