Brix Sans

Brix Sans is suitable for all kinds of text, from headlines to body copy. It is a highly readable sans serif face with lots of character. Brix’s precision is balanced by warmth. It is the well-rounded go-to font for UC San Diego. Brix should be your first choice for most uses. For effective hierarchy and pleasing contrast, try incorporating contrasting weights—black and extra light, for instance.

Brix is available for purchase from myfonts.com. If you cannot obtain a license for Brix, Myriad (preferred) and Calibri are acceptable substitutes. Myriad is included with a license for Adobe Creative Cloud. Calibri is included with Microsoft Office.

Typography
Chronicle

Chronicle is a great choice for extended passages of text, such as in a book or lengthy manual. It is a transitional serif typeface that was designed to be energetic and adaptable.

Chronicle is available in both text and display versions. In most cases, use the text version when setting body copy. Use Chronicle sparingly in headlines—a sans serif such as Brix is usually more reflective of the campus.

Chronicle is available from typography.com. If you cannot obtain a license for Chronicle, Minion (preferred) and Cambria are acceptable substitutes. Minion is included with a license for Adobe Creative Cloud. Cambria is included with Microsoft Office.
