Typography

Fonts are carefully designed to convey a personality, and these were chosen to convey Clemson’s personality. Some are formal, some casual, some bold and some elegant. All convey a different side of the Clemson brand and should be used as carefully as any other element of design.

Brand fonts are available to campus communicators who are producing marketing and promotional collateral. Contact Dave Dryden at 864-656-2469 or drydend@clemson.edu. Alternatively, purchase links are included below.
