Upcoming Font Changes within the UW Theme

Posted on behalf of Danielle Cranmer, Director of Web Services at University Marketing

Hello WiscWeb users,

As was recently announced, Red Hat Text and Red Hat Display are replacing Verlag and Vitesse as the UW’s official brand fonts. Complete information about why this change is necessary and how you’ll be affected can be found on our font transition page on the UMark Brand site.

Good news for you: since you host your site in the WiscWeb service, the new brand fonts will be updated for you on February 16, 2023. For a preview of how the new fonts look in the UW Theme, visit the UW Theme site.

Note that additional guidance on using the new brand fonts in print and other media will be available on the UMark Brand site later this month.

Questions about this change can be directed to web@umark.wisc.edu.

Thank you all for your support throughout this transition!
