Typography

Typography means the style and size of text. Type settings here should be used in the construction of components not defined in Spark. See each setting for intended use.

Information

  • The heading elements are set automatically and don't require you to add classes.
  • The body copy will automatically get style and size from Spark, but in order to get the line height collision fix, you'll need to apply a setting class.

Restrictions

  • You must set up a Typekit kit for your application to make use of these settings.

Display One

This type size is intended for cases where type needs to be larger than usual and not intended as a section heading or divider. It is usually for ads or hero images.

Typekit Setup

In order to implement Spark-Core, you'll need to create a kit on Typekit.com for your application.

Need access to typekit for your internal Quicken Loans application? Email sparkdesignsystem@quickenloans.com

The kit should include two weights (normal and bold) of one font family, Myriad Pro. We currently do not use italics in our type treatment.

Please see Typography for font usage.

Typekit Loader

You'll need to include the following snippet into your site's code. Spark includes fallback font definitions, so it's recommended that you include it inside of the <body> tag, towards the end of your document, in order to avoid render blocking.

You'll need to insert your new kit's id into the snippet below.

Included in the code below is an event that gets dispatched when the fonts have finished loading ('fonts-active').

      
  (function(d) {
    var config = {
      kitId: '<your-kit-id-here>',
      scriptTimeout: 3000,
      active: function () {

        // Create the event.
        var event = document.createEvent('Event');
        event.initEvent('fonts-active', true, true);
        document.dispatchEvent(event);
      }
    },
    h=d.documentElement,t=setTimeout(function(){h.className=h.className.replace(/\bwf-loading\b/g,"")+" wf-inactive";},config.scriptTimeout),tk=d.createElement("script"),f=false,s=d.getElementsByTagName("script")[0],a;h.className+=" wf-loading";tk.src='//use.typekit.net/'+config.kitId+'.js';tk.async=true;tk.onload=tk.onreadystatechange=function(){a=this.readyState;if(f||a&&a!="complete"&&a!="loaded")return;f=true;clearTimeout(t);try{
    Typekit.load(config)}catch(e){}};
    s.parentNode.insertBefore(tk,s)
  })(document);
      
    

Fallback fonts

In the event that a client has issues loading typefaces from typekit, we've defined the following system and web-safe typefaces that will be used in their place:

  • Helvetica
  • Helvetica Neue
  • Arial
  • sans-serif

Line-height Collision

When left alone, line height on type will create extra whitespace around the top and bottom of the text. When the text is in a container that has padding applied, it appears larger than intended, due to the extra whitespace.

See the article here for details: Space in design systems

The type sizes defined in spark all have this extra whitespace removed. Heading elements have this cropping automatically applied, where body copy will need the correct type classes applied.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Architecto asperiores aspernatur commodi consectetur deleniti eaque enim, ex exercitationem expedita facilis iusto magni, nemo obcaecati quas soluta tempore totam veritatis voluptatem?

Type Sizes Not Defined Here

If you need a type size that is not accounted for in the typography section, see below for additional sizing in each brand family.

The base value for this relative scale is 16px.

We recommend that if you're building something custom, that you use the type settings above. The type sizes listed below should be used rarely.
