Lists

Connected items, one below another


How we design them

  • Keep copy short
  • Start each line with a capital letter (unless using words like “giffgaff” and “goodybag”)
  • Don’t put a full stop at the end of each line
  • Numbers in ordered lists must be decimal and have a full stop
  • Using ticks? make them green

How they look
