Typography

The Celo fonts were intentionally chosen to speak to Celo’s Approachable and Academic brand principles. To honor both energies and compliment a broader range of expression, a serif and a sans serif font were chosen.

Typefaces
Celo uses open-source fonts in order for community members to download, build, and design Celo branded material. Refer to the and guidelines below when building a project on Celo

This is Garamond, the Celo brand typeface.

EB Garamond represents our Academic brand principle described as timeless and professional. It is an appropriate formal visual tone for education and declaration. Use EB Garamond for the majority of titles and paragraphs

This is Jost*, our supporting font.

Jost*’s geometric form functions as an approachable compliment to EB Garamond. It is used more sparingly and speaks to the typography found in the logo and the round shapes in the illustrations. Use Jost* for call to actions, diagrams, instructions, and infographics.
