type style tips

example of tight leading compared to loose leading

  • Never hyphenate wraps, headlines, or body copy
  • Never justify body copy
  • When employing different weights of type in the same paragraph, use weights that are at least two steps apart (i.e. Duplicate Iconic Regular can be used with Thin or Bold, but shouldn’t be used with Light or Medium.)
  • Use tight leading on headline copy (not much space between lines of type).
  • Use loose leading on body copy (lots of space between lines of type)

Other fonts are OK!*

faith and glory not allowedIf every piece of promotional material used the same two fonts, things would start to look really boring really fast. Get creative and play with other typefaces! As long as your piece honors the logo guidelines outlined in this brand book, your design is probably ok.

*NOTE: The script font Faith and Glory is no longer a university font and is not acceptable for use on any Loyola materials except with express written approval from the Office of Marketing and Communications.
