Typography and Fonts

Font consistency
For all information material, including flyers, posters and retractable banners, as well as for the university website, the University of Mannheim uses Myriad Pro as a sans-serif font. The font harmonizes ideally with Minion Pro, the font used in the university logo, and creates a perfect balance between the traditional and the modern.

For internal purposes and in letters (correspondence font), we use the standard font Calibri.

Availability of the university font
Myriad Pro is an Adobe system font and available in the current versions of the programs InDesign and Photoshop. Calibri is a Microsoft standard font. By using these fonts, we can avoid high licensing costs for the procurement of new fonts.

You can also download Myriad Pro below. Bear in mind, however, that you may only use this font in printed products and in videos.
