Typography


Typography is as important to a successful brand identity as institutional marks.

 

An official font should reflect the image of the organization it represents. If it’s used consistently, OSU’s typography can identify the university independently of its wordmarks or logos, helping proliferate the university’s brand.

 

Fonts communicate a tone, whether formal, friendly, confident, etc. We seek to be approachable in our tone in all communications, with first-person, conversational style preferred. We strive to use a confident, friendly and personal tone in our communications, talking “with” our audiences as opposed to “at” them, while providing relevant information.

 

Our selected typefaces reflect this personable approach. Gotham Narrow, Sentinel, Fjalla One and Rubik are the primary fonts we use. For information on font license purchases, contact the department of brand management. External vendors or consultants must purchase their own font files for usage.


Typographic suggestions

Every communication project will have its own typographic style. Regardless of the design used, all typographic design at OSU should be of high quality and easy to understand.

 

Our examples have been designed so that they can be altered as needed. If you have further questions regarding typography or would like feedback on your design, contact the department of brand management.
