Do I need to remove Verlag and Vitesse from our website?

Yes. If your website uses Verlag and Vitesse fonts for web page (HTML) copy through the campuswide license, you must phase out these fonts by June 30, 2023. This date is when our campuswide web font license expires. These fonts should be replaced with the UW’s new feature brand fonts, Red Hat Display and Red Hat Text.

If your website is hosted on WiscWeb: the font change was automatically done for you on February 16, 2023.

If your website uses the UW WordPress Theme but is not hosted on WiscWeb: you need to manually download the new version of the UW Theme or UW Theme Lite to refresh the fonts.

If your website uses UW fonts/design hierarchy but does not use the UW Theme: new HTML templates and detailed guidance on how to update the fonts on your website are available.

If you have any questions about the best way to proceed with the font update on your website, University Marketing web services can help advise you.
