Caltech's print type palette is made up of primary and secondary fonts, as well as acceptable alternatives.

Primary Font

Helvetica Neue is the primary typeface for print communications. Its wide range of weights, ranging from light, medium, italic, bold, super bold, to condensed and extended, provides the versatility and flexibility necessary for diverse design needs.

Helvetica Neue is a system font on most Apple computers. If you don't have the font or if your project requires a broader spectrum of font styles, a license can be purchased for 1-5 users at

Secondary Font

Adobe Caslon Pro is our secondary typeface, suited for more formal applications, body text, and print publications.

If you have an active Adobe subscription, the typeface can be downloaded on Adobe Fonts. To purchase licenses for the typeface, please visit

Purchasing of the typefaces is optional, and alternative typefaces are available for use.
