Legacy Fonts

UMaine’s legacy serif fonts are Adobe Garamond and URW Egyptienne and sans-serif font is Frutiger.  These fonts are being phased out due to rising prices, but are still part of the UMaine brand.

It is recommended that one serif font and one sans serif font complement each other in a publication. More than two font families in one publication can be visually confusing and haphazard.

Due to the same kinds of licensing restrictions that prohibit the transferring of purchased music files, fonts cannot be shared between UMaine entities. Departments interested in purchasing Egyptienne, Frutiger and Adobe Garamond can find these fonts online at myfonts.com or by clicking the images below for a direct link and pricing information.

Font Alternatives

Due to the font licensing restrictions on UMaine’s Legacy Fonts, we have provided a list of Google Fonts that are free to download. The alternative to URW Egyptienne is Roboto Slab, the alternatives to Frutiger are Arial and Open Sans, and the alternative to Adobe Garamond is EB GaramondThese free fonts can be found on Google Fonts by clicking the links below.
