Web Typography

Ringside Narrow

Ringside Narrow SSm is our web font for headings on university web pages. The SSm (ScreenSmart) version of Ringside Narrow is specifically created to display larger and more readable on the web. BYU’s license to this font will work on all byu.edu websites (or on a localhost during website construction).

Ringside Narrow SSm is included in the web theme and is used in the header, menu bar, and footer. The web theme must not be modified to use other typefaces for these elements.

Ringside Narrow SSm is recommended for content headers, but should otherwise not be used for body text.

Ringside Narrow SSm is automatically included for websites and applications built using BYU Websites or the BYU Web Components. Custom frameworks can include the following line in their HTML head to access the font:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.byu.edu/theme-fonts/1.x.x/public-sans/fonts.css" media="all">

Ringside Narrow SSm should be referenced in CSS as:
