Our simple typestyle is bold and confident, using one typeface, Helvetica Neue LT Std, for everything. It is a clean and modern font with a timeless quality. You can use it in a refined way with strong, uncluttered typography and in one of these weights:

  • Light
  • Roman
  • Bold.

These standards tell you what the accepted ANU fonts are and how to have them installed on your computer.

Arial should also be used in print (e.g. in Microsoft Office documents) when Helvetica Neue LT Std is not available.

The standard font for our websites is Roboto.

Note that only ANU-branded materials require the fonts above.
