Typography is an important element of our look and feel. Consistent use of a legible and distinct font helps differentiate us from other universities and build recognition. Some of the core UVic typefaces are licensed fonts, so they have to be purchased.

Quick typography tips

  • Myriad Pro is recommended for most printed external communications and marketing materials
  • If you're creating something in a program that doesn't embed fonts (such as Microsoft Office), use a substitute typeface. Your recipient's computer won't be able to read Myriad Pro if they don't have it installed on their machine.
