The heavy lifting.

To ensure that it can handle even the most complicated content, Chronicle contains all the trimmings for informational typography: not only fixed-width figures, fractions, and extended monetary symbols, but a full range of dingbats specifically informed by editorial typography.

Chronicle Text: Symbols

Symbols

To come up with the pi characters in Chronicle Numeric, Hoefler & Co. undertook a year-long research project to analyze the ways in which dense information is displayed in newspapers. After reviewing more than 3,800 excerpts of periodicals from around the world, we produced a set of symbols indispensable to all parts of a publication — from box scores to bestseller lists to bond ratings.

Each of the Chronicle Numeric fonts contains 74 symbols specially designed to accompany the Chronicle Text family, and every symbol is carefully engineered to function well at small sizes. Like the rest of Chronicle, each of these symbols is provided in four different grades, to allow designers total control over their media.
