Using official CC typography, or fonts, helps to create a strong and consistent college brand. When you use any of the typography sets above in your communications, you help to express the consistent “look” and “voice” of CC.

Electra and Proxima Nova are the main fonts used in the Office of Communications & Marketing and are licensed fonts; you must pay the font creators to use the fonts on your computer. Contact the Office of Communications & Marketing for information on a licensing agreement.

Crimson Pro and Montserrat are free fonts offered by Google. Download the package that contains both fonts.

Georgia and Verdana are system fonts installed on both PC and Mac computers. You can use them right away at any time without extra payment, downloads, or installations.

Some fonts require instructions for installation. Contact the Office of Communications & Marketing or ITS for support.

Brand Colors

CC’s main institutional colors are CC Black and CC Gold. White and tints of black can also be used. Additionally, CC has four additional sets of palettes: expanded institutional colors that reflect our sense of place; bright, energizing colors that we use to communicate to students; rich, sophisticated colors that we use to communicate to donors, alumni, and parents; and colors used exclusively for Fine Arts Center communications.
