Typography is an essential piece of the SOE identity system. The consistent use of the selected font families throughout SOE applications adds to a cohesive visual style.

The School of Education recommends two varieties of fonts within the serif and san serif families. Each one has a default font used on all computers and provides you with a no cost choice. The other font is purchasable if the unit decides to make it available on their computers.


Garamond (default font on all computers – no fee)

Minion Pro (Purchase)

San Serif

Arial (default font on all computers – no fee)

Helvetica Neue (Purchase)


Arial (default font on all computers – no fee)
