OU Fonts

The University of Oklahoma’s visual identity includes a primary font that compliments its logos.  Garamond is the typeface used for OU’s academic logos. This font should be used liberally in all of OU’s materials in order to create a consistent image for the university.

This is not the only font allowed, but it is strongly suggested. Any font that is clean and classic in design can be compatible with the OU image. Two suggestions below are Bank Gothic and Futura. They are both very consistent with the OU identity and also quite adaptable fonts.
