Headlines, Subheads and Body Copy

Helvetica Neue Condensed and Gotham are the institution’s primary sans-serif typefaces, and Chronicle Deck is the primary serif typeface. When used together, they create a balanced look and feel for all messaging.

Fonts are licensed products and cannot be shared. Guidance for where to purchase the font packages is available below.


Headlines

Helvetica Neue Condensed

Helvetica Neue Condensed is UWF’s primary headline typeface and should be used for large display text. This classic sans-serif typeface, with its clean, modern lines and elegant curves, looks best at larger sizes in our visual identity system.

The default weight to be used is Helvetica Neue Thin Condensed (#37), title-case. When headlines become longer, and thus smaller in scale, move up to the next font weight, Helvetica Neue Light Condensed (#47) to maintain the same visual hierarchy. Secondary weights of Helvetica Neue Condensed (#57) and Helvetica Neue Bold Condensed (#77) can also be used as needed to assist with legibility at smaller sizes.

Although other weights and styles are available in the Helvetica Neue Condensed family, only the styles listed (#37, #47, #57, #77) are acceptable for use within the UWF visual identity system. No other weights should be used, unless approved by Institutional Communications.

Sans-Serif Subheads and Body Copy

Gotham

Gotham is UWF’s primary sans-serif subhead and body copy typeface because of its strength, versatility and clean, inviting structure.

The default styles to be used are Gotham Book, and Gotham Bold. The intro or lead-in copy is Gotham Bold, either title-case or all-caps in UWF Blue, while the remaining body copy is Gotham Book.

Other supporting styles of Gotham may also be used, however, they should be reserved for emphasis or smaller applications.

Serif Subheads and Body Copy

Chronicle Deck

Chronicle Deck is used as UWF’s primary serif subhead and body copy typeface, used predominantly as body copy. Its legibility in small point sizes, ability to withstand the effects of different media and inviting characteristics make this a valuable typeface.
