Tables and Charts

Colours

Ideally, only the main and supplementary colours already defined in the CD Manual should be used for tables and charts. If this range of colours is not sufficient, the signal colours shown here may be used. These colours may only be used in sales documents.

Try to generally use as few different colour groups as possible. Always use the main colour red to highlight important contents.

Charts

Generally use a line width of 0.5 pt for all charts up to the size of A3. Use grey 2 as line colour. Should this be impossible for reasons of readability, use white or black instead.

Arrows at the end of lines are in the open arrow style (acute angles).

Avoid filling in areas – unless essential for ease of understanding – and use outlines instead

Diagramme

Always use simple elements in charts, ideally only circles, triangles and lines. Never use optical effects such as shadows or 3D.

In charts that are to show overlaps, you may reduce colour opacity to 80% in order to achieve the desired effect.
