Type size, line spacing and spacing between the text hierarchies (headline, subheadline, copy) can be freely selected. There is a recommendation for the ratio of headline and Audi rings, see Rings. The perfect ratio between the rhombus and headline is achieved when the outer ring height is 70% of the uppercase height and the inner ring height defines the height of the rhombus.
Line spacing of minimum 100 % and maximum 120 % is recommended for the headline. Optical kerning is max. –45 for headlines and –15 for sub-headlines and copy. Badge and text elements are left justified and aligned flush with each other. Copy is set in ragged type (principle of "fluttering flag").
In special cases in which the badge is at the same level as the rings, the typography is to be aligned with the inner edge of the rings.
Font styles are assigned to individual text elements:
> Headline in Extended Bold (always uppercase)
> Sub-headline in Extended Normal
> Buttons and text buttons in Screen Normal
> Body copy in Normal or Screen Normal
Highlights in the body copy and tables are set in Audi Type Bold or Audi Type Screen Bold.
