The classic way of doin hs design would be by groove and tongue.
But since the cross is not really supporting any real weight, that is the job of the straight legs, a standard joint with a screw will do.
If you want t avoid screw and prefer wood lue inted look up hot make tongue and groove connections - there are ways to cheat like using so called bisquit joiners.
These ony require a cut in both surfaces to match and work like the woodenpins you have in flat pack furniture.
Can be used for the support of the shelfs as well.
