Our typeface is Helvetica Neue, a classic sans serif face: simple, modern, and elegant. The openness and geometry of its form make it highly legible. It works equally well for display type and body copy. Helvetica Neue is recommended for use as the featured typeface in all University of Colorado communications.
When Helvetica Neue is not available, Helvetica and Arial are suitable substitutes. Contact University Advancement about obtaining a license for the Helvetica Neue typeface family.

Typeface Licenses FAQ
What does having a typeface license really mean?
A typeface license means you can use the typeface in your designs and publications. Licenses are per-machine so each computer you want to have the typeface installed on is considered a single license.
How much does a license cost?
A license for the basic package, which includes 6 fonts from Thin to Bold, is $149 from Linotype, and the complete "Pro" family is $1,299. The university has purchased several licenses of the basic package to distribute to campus users for free.
How many licenses can I have?
There are a limited number of free licenses available, so we ask that you request only as many as you need and will use.
How do I get a license?
You can either purchase the font license or request to receive one of the free licenses if any are still available. Please contact University Advancement.
