E-mail signature

Digital signature

Your e-mail signature marks the end of every message. It must represent the excellence that is at the core of the AO. It is important all AO signatures are built and used in a coherent and careful way.


Principles

Books

Text pages, grid A4

Flexible

A simple, six-column grid serves as an invisible structure for all text page designs.

The grid can be applied in a variety of ways, responding to text type, overall length and pictures.

Successful layout exploits the tension between bold headlines and calmly presented body text.
