Platform Elements: Typography

Official Typography

‌Iowan Old Style and Whitney are the two typefaces used in Drake's identity platform. These typefaces are licensed to University Communications—and vendors—for use.

Substitute Typefaces

Users without access to licensed fonts can achieve a similar look and feel with two typefaces available on both Mac and PC platforms: Cambria is a serif font that mimics Iowan Old Style; Calibri is a sans serif font that mimics Whitney.

Web Typography

UC has identified additional substitute typefaces for use on the web.
