Our words carry weight, and so does our typography. When used thoughtfully, typography can add visual meaning to the words you choose. We use one primary typeface—United—for nearly all of our materials. Its breadth of styles allow us the flexibility to tailor the typographic style of each piece to its audience while still building brand recognition.
Primary Typefaces for Print
Our primary typeface, United, comes in several styles. We use it for everything from headlines to body copy. If you are interested in acquiring the United font, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because the variants of United Serif do not include italics, they should be reserved for headline treatments rather than large blocks of text.
Reserve for headlines rather than large bodies of text.
Web and Secondary Typefaces
All University of Oregon websites share a consistent look and feel—we want our audience to know at a glance that they’re visiting a UO website.
Our web typography includes three key typefaces: United Sans Regular, United Serif Regular (both for headlines), and Source Sans Variable (for body text). If you are unable to license United, we suggest using Source Sans as a replacement font.
Source Sans and Source Serif are secondary fonts in digital and print when United is not available for use.
Use for headings, subheadings, and header and footer text.
