Typography

Intro

This is Cooper Light. Our brand typeface.

Cooper Light is the primary brand typeface for Mailchimp. An elegant serif infused with a quirky warmth, this headline face projects trustworthiness, optimism, and sincerity.

The light weight sets an editorial tone while uncommon rounded corners infuse the typeface with a distinctive personality.

Graphik is our supporting font

Graphik is our workhorse typeface, carefully chosen to support Cooper Light in more functional moments. Purposefully plain, this sans-serif prioritizes legibility and balances the expressiveness of Cooper Light.

Type Scale

We follow a 6px baseline grid for achieving a vertical rhythm on all block-level elements in the app.
