Like color and graphics, typography is a design element, and allows a user to express style. Consistent use of our official fonts unifies materials and adds another element that defines USD’s look and feel.

The University of San Diego's two official fonts are ITC Berkeley Oldstyle and Myriad Pro. ITC Berkeley Oldstyle has a classic, elegant look — words that also describe the university itself. Berkeley is a traditional font best suited for projects that are more formal, as well as for academic and educational projects. Myriad Pro is a strong, neutral and contemporary font. It is considered to be readable and friendly, and works well with the university's established identity.

If official fonts are not available, Adobe Garamond Pro and Georgia are the approved alternates to Berkeley; Arial is the approved alternate to Myriad.

The university does not supply fonts.
