Typography intro

UCL has two typefaces – Arial and Garamond

  • Arial is UCL's primary typeface. This is because it is available on all computers and systems at UCL.

  • Arial can be used in any weight

  • Helvetica can also be used as an alternative to Arial where available

  • We also use Garamond as a secondary typeface

  • Type is an integral element in successful communication. 

  • Using just one typeface can be elegant or modern, vibrant or understated. It just depends on how you use it.

  • Keep it left aligned, never mix alignment style.

  • Never use justified text.
