Typography

Font Family

Berklee.edu uses Nunito Sans for all body text and headers (a close match to Avenir, the official Berklee font). For the top global header, we use an ALL CAPS condensed Carrois Gothic font.

Headers

NOTE: H1 tags are added programmatically to the title of each node. They should not be used within the page.

This is an H2

Paragraph below an H2. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

This is an H3

Paragraph below an H3. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

This is an H4

This is an H5
This is an H6

Formatting

This is a regular paragraph. Paragraphs can include bold italic underlined, or strikethrough text.

Paragraph text may be indented in increments of 40px up to 120px.

Indentation of 40px.

Indentation of 80px.

Indentation of 120px.

Icons

For working within a basic page, you can embed any (free) fontawesome icon. But you have to do it from the source code view (it won't show up on the wysiwyg view).

In the source view, format the code like this: 

<p><span class="fa fa-envelope-o">&nbsp;</span>

(the non-breaking space code is needed, otherwise the editor tries to wipe out the empty span claBooksss when you save the page).

The fa fa-envelope-o part is what you'd get from the fontawesome icon page.

To make the icon larger, add "fa-2x" 

<p><span class="fa fa-envelope-o fa-2x">&nbsp;</span>

Tables

Tables should be used for displaying data (not laying out text and images - see Columns and Grids for that functionality). 

Standard Table (with Table Headers)

  DEGREE DIPLOMA
Tuition $37,800 $32,588
Fees $1,110 $1,110
Room and Board $17,372 $17,372
Health Insurance $2,134 $2,134
Total $65,260 $60,048

 

 

Compact Table

This table uses table class "data"

Graduate Programs in Valencia $41,100
Master of Music in Contemporary Performance (Global Jazz Concentration) in Boston $47,500

Master of Arts in Music Therapy
Low-residency, five-semester program

$28,500 Year 1 (3 semesters)
$19,000 Year 2 (2 semesters)

 

 

Data Table (With Table Headers)

This table uses the class "data" and tr class "altRow" to shade every other row, plus an anchored link for the asterisk:

  DEGREE DIPLOMA
Tuition $37,800* $32,588*
Fees $1,110 $1,110
Room and Board $17,372 $17,372
Health Insurance $2,134 $2,134
Total $65,260 $60,048

*This is a paragraph with the class "endnote".

 

 

Data Table with Filter/Sort

This table uses the class "datatable" which generates the sorting and filtering ability. Be sure that you have a  <thead>  to wrap the first row!

You can use the following parameters:

  • data-order-column - which column to sort by. The column numbers start at the far left with 0.
  • data-order-direction - asc for ascending order, desc for descending order
  • data-page-length - How many items to display per page
  • data-paging - Set to "false" to hide pagination controls and show all items
  • data-searching - Set to "false" to hide search control
  • data-show-info - Set to "false" to hide info display ("Showing..." on left side of footer)

In some cases (e.g. currency and date formats), alphabetical ordering does not work for the visible data in a column. In this case, add a 'data-order' attribute to every <td> data element in the column. When present, data-order attribute values are used for sorting instead of visible data.

Campus Cross-Reference Styles

Berklee.edu is the launch point for all portals deeper into the Berklee Universe. Many pages exist on Berklee.edu that actually refer to information better expressed on a different campus site. Campus cross-reference styles exist for this reason. Use a campus cross-reference style when you need to send a user to a different Berklee site, alert them that they are reading information about a different Berklee campus, or both.

It can be used in a call-out style:

For information about the Valencia campus, visit the Berklee Valencia site. 

<div class="campus-xref">For information about the Valencia campus, visit the <a href="http://valencia.berklee.edu/faqs-spring-2021/" target="_blank">Berklee Valencia</a> site.&nbsp;</div>

For information about the Valencia campus, visit the Berklee Valencia site. 

<div class="campus-xref">For information about the Valencia campus, visit the <a class="internal-berklee-link" href="http://valencia.berklee.edu/faqs-spring-2021/" target="_blank">Berklee Valencia</a> site.&nbsp;</div>

 

It can also be used on simple links:
