RECCOMENDED TEXT STYLING
It is highly recommended that you do not change the styling of the headings unless you need to change the font size or weight. (If you change the font sizes, ensure that all headings are in REM and the body is in px. Setting the body to a higher px size will also increase the size of your headings, as changing the body sets the size of your root.

Applying multiple changes to all of the options will make the website too hectic for regular viewing and may also cause some issues with responsiveness. Change at your own risk.

RECCOMENDED BUTTON STYLING

It is highly recommended that you follow these rules with applying styling to your buttons.  

The text of your button needs to be highly legible. So if you have a dark red button, you should have a light colored text. If you have a light grey button, you should have a dark colored text. See the buttons below for examples. This method is to ensure that there is a proper contrast ratio.

Light Button Dark Button

It is also recommended that you follow certain rules when it comes to the padding of your button. 

Correct Button Padding

Overall, the padding on the right and left side should be the same. The padding on the top and bottom should be the same as well. THE PADDING ON THE RIGHT AND LEFT SIDE SHOULD BE LARGER THAN THE PADDING ON THE TOP AND BOTTOM.
