Inspiring the Future


Typography can work together with other design elements to make communications more readable, consistent, and visually appealing. IEEE typefaces have been chosen with these purposes in mind, as well as for their adaptability to a wide range of materials.

Formata is the primary IEEE typeface, and should be used for all print applications relating to the IEEE Foundation.

Verdana is the primary IEEE typeface to be used on screen-based applications, such as PowerPoint documents and Web sites.

Print Typefaces

Formata (Primary)

Adobe Caslon Pro (Secondary)

Digital Typefaces

Verdana (Primary)

Times New Roman (Secondary)

Typeface Licensing

Both Verdana and Times New Roman are default system fonts and are readily available to most users. Due to licensing restrictions for font usage, we cannot share purchased fonts (Formata and Adobe Caslon Pro) among departments or with volunteers. Currently IEEE does not mandate the font be purchased from a particular vendor, so you may want to shop the best price for a bundled package, if possible, that includes the entire family with numerous weights (including condensed).
