JMU Libraries Fonts

The JMU Libraries brand uses JMU’s official fonts: Artegra Sans and Artegra Slab. Learn more on the JMU Typography page. 

Do I Need JMU Fonts?

Most Libraries employees do not need to worry about using JMU fonts. JMU’s strict branding requirements apply only to official communications to external audiences, such as donors and visitors to our website. 

If you are creating a document, presentation, or design that needs to meet specific branding standards (or if you’re not sure), we recommend that you contact Emily Blake or another member of the Communications & Outreach team in JMU Libraries for help.

However, if you know your way around design and would like to create your own branded materials, go for it! You will need to download Artegra fonts to your computer in a specific way in order to use them in programs like Microsoft or Adobe Creative Suite.

How Do I Download JMU Fonts?

First, create a folder on your computer that’s easy for you to locate. Then download the Artegra fonts into the folder, and follow these instructions to add them to the right spot on your computer:

Mac:

  • Double-click on the “.otf” files that you downloaded above. 
  • Click “Install Font” on the small preview window that pops up.
  • An administrator login may be needed to authenticate the process.
  • If you have problems with the font, you may need to restart the computer.

Windows 10:

  • ‚ÄčType “Font” into the search bar next to the Start button (bottom left)
  • Select Font Settings to open the Font window.
  • Open the window where your fonts are saved and Select All (Ctrl-A).
  • Drag the font files to the Font window (where it says “Drag and drop to install”).
  • An administrator login may be needed to authenticate the process.
  • If you have problems with the font, you may need to restart your computer.
