Rice’s typographic palette combines the elegant formality of Copernicus with the modern design of Mallory for a robust system capable of supporting the many voices of our university.


The serif font Copernicus was chosen for its stately character and comes in a variety of weights. Copernicus portrays the wisdom and honor of Rice.

Mallory was chosen as a complementary sans serif font, featuring carefully considered details in the design of the letterforms. Its range of weight allows it to be versatile in creating typographic layouts.
