New DNB font

We have now our very own DNB font. As this font behaves very differently than Fedra Sans, the DNB UX has spesifyed how we will use the DNB font on digital medium. Therefore font-family, font-size, font-weight and line-height properties have changed.

In normal circumstances, you have to do nothing regarding to this change.

Font's and typography are handled out of the box

More info and details in the respective documentation on:


A lot of small layout adjustments are med in v6 to fix alignment regarding new font and positioning styles.
