Northwestern’s typography is flexible enough to meet a wide range of situations and requirements. Campton and Akkurat Pro are our sans-serif fonts. Campton works well for large, expressive headlines, while Akkurat Pro functions well in situations with small text or large lists. Periodico Display and Text is our serif font, appropriate for use at any size. Substitute fonts can be used when the brand fonts are unavailable.
