Fonts: OHIO brand approved

The Official Ohio University fonts available for desktop download are P22 Mackinac, Proxima Nova, and Termina. Only install these versions.

OHIO's primary brand identity font is P22 Mackinac and should be used on most executions. Termina and Proxima Nova are also available for specific use cases. View the Typography Guide for more information on the typefaces and their usage. 

Please note that due to a limited number of licenses, the download of Ohio University fonts is reserved for faculty and staff without Adobe Creative Cloud access.

The University brand fonts identified are licensed for print, video, broadcast, web, and digital reproduction through Adobe Creative Cloud subscriptions. Any member of the University community with an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription managed by OIT may activate the fonts for use using this alternative method. View the Adobe Fonts licensing documentation for further information.

P22 Mackinac, Termina, and Proxima Nova are to replace the previous open-source OHIO fonts of EB Garamond, Barlow and Zilla Slab. Full adoption of the new fonts across the institution is required to maintain consistency in the University's brand.
