- Franklin Gothic is the primary typeface for both headlines and calls-to-action. ALL CAPS is the recommended style in these applications.
- Franklin Gothic Demi Condensed Italic is used for text within buttons.

Fallback Primary Web Font - Arial

Secondary Web Fonts
Bodoni is a secondary font in the UVA brand. It is a serif font and is used as a supporting typeface for headlines and call-outs. A more designed font, Bodoni is not intended to be used as a primary font but as an accent design element in select creative applications.
Bodoni Italic Heavy (900) is recommended for headlines and call-outs, to personify quotes, for numeric/statistic call-outs, or for headlines of lists to create contrast with Franklin Gothic.
Fallback Secondary Web Font - Georgia
Georgia is designated as the fallback font when Bodoni is not supported. The provided CSS (above) includes the necessary degradation code to utilize Georgia as a secondary fallback font.
