IN CORPORATE-LEVEL COMMUNICATIONS
The main colours are blue, grey and white.
Red, orange and green can be used as supporting
colours and in details.

With B-to-C marketing, YIT’s identity is more
colourful: Use all six colours equally.

For long texts, the best colour is black.
Tint shades can be used, for example, as secondary
colours in various materials, graphs and as effects.
Don’t use tint colours as dominating colours, for
example on covers of brochures, or as background
colours of ads or any other materials.
YIT’s official font is Helvetica Neue.
Webfont-versions of Helvetica Neue
are available for online use.
The Arial font family is used in digital
applications outside online use. Choose
Arial in Microsoft Office applications, such
as Word or PowerPoint documents.
Web address icons
YIT has its own website icon that should be
included in all graphic materials.
The website address on the icon should
direct to YIT’s main page or to other pages
on YIT’s website.
An icon should always be legible, so make
sure it’s big enough and appears in good
quality. However, icons should never be
bigger in height than the YIT logo.
Icons come in all of YIT’s brand colours.
Use icons in a colour that stands out
against the background. A good rule of
thumb is to choose the heart colour to be the
same colour as your background.
