Potsdam Prepared: Fall 2021 Updates

Official Fonts

Typography is an essential part of an organized, consistent brand identity system.

Two type families are designated for use with SUNY Potsdam’s materials:

  • Adobe Garamond Pro
  • Adobe Myriad Pro

Utilizing these typefaces will reinforce the Potsdam logos, thereby supporting strong brand recognition.

These typefaces should be used together or interchangeably to reinforce the Potsdam brand. If Adobe Garamond Pro is not available, it may be substituted with Times New Roman.

If Myriad Pro is not available, it may be substituted with Helvetica.

For recruitment and special event materials (invitations), other typefaces may be used in addition to Adobe Garamond Pro and Adobe Myriad Pro to allow for creative flexibility. Should you find any justified necessity to deviate from these typography standards, please address your concerns to College Communications.
