Consistent use of typography will visually unify communication materials. Wake Forest University uses these same typefaces.

Primary Typeface

Our primary typeface for headlines and body copy is Avenir (Light, Roman, Medium, Heavy). A very legible typeface, it is simple, yet elegant. Avenir should be the dominant typeface used on all print and media materials.

Primary Typeface Avenir

Secondary Typeface

Our secondary typeface is Minion Pro (Roman, Italic, Semibold/Semibold Italic, Bold/Bold Italic). Minion Pro should only be used for accent type treatments or in the case of dense amounts of body copy.
