Typeface

The font used in the logo is Minion. It is a modern face based on classic humanist type styles dating back to the Renaissance. It is the primary font for the University and is available in a range of weights and optional "old style" non-aligning numbers that are used for addresses and telephone numbers on all of the stationery items.

It is recommended that Minion be used for titles and headlines in all medical school materials in order to establish a consistent and distinctive look. If Minion is not available, Palatino is an acceptable alternative.

A good complementary sans-serif typeface is Myriad. It has similar proportions to Minion, and works very well for text and caption use. When Myriad is not available, as in documents that have been prepared in Microsoft Word, Arial can be substituted.
