Data visualization is a powerful tool to communicate complex content and large amounts of information clearly and comprehensively.
Our flexible layout makes customized communication possible at all touchpoints. The design system is scalable and can be used flexibly. From the graphically reduced, information-heavy visualization to the visually expressive presentation of content, it can be individually adapted depending on the context.
Our expressive typeface supports brand-building communication and ensures instant brand recognition.
Typography for standardized communication
We use the system font Segoe UI for all other standardized communication and touchpoints or in the event of technical restrictions.
To allow for a consistent drawing of tables, they are based on the following parameters of typography, line widths, structure, and the use of highlights.
Two different line widths are available for structuring the content of our tables. The thick outline (1/1) marks the beginning and end of the table. The thin outline (1/3) provides structure within the graphic. The line widths are freely selectable, but the ratio between thin and thick lines should always be 1 to 3.
Our three main colors for lines in tables are Henkel red, white and warm grey. In the case of expressive layouts, all welcoming and progressive colors can be used in the respective combination. The need for sufficient contrast is to be observed at all times.
In order to keep track of complex graphics and tables in particular, the table rows can be labeled alternately in white and the background color of the respective basic color. In expressive layouts, the table rows can be stored alternately in the color combinations.
Contents of exceptional cells can be highlighted with a color. In the case of expressive layouts, cells can be highlighted in the color combinations.
To allow for a consistent drawing of charts, they are based on the following parameters of typography, line widths, structure, and the use of highlights.
