About the typography system

When designing materials, you have two brand fonts to choose from. Their visual appeal, classic forms and their approachable design make them ideal for The Citadel brand.


Garamond is an old-style serif typeface that beautifully complements our legacy font, Trajan. This font is especially great for body text in print projects, but should not be used as body text in digital applications.

Garamond is a standard system font on most computers.

Open Sans

Open Sans is a clean and modern sans-serif typeface specially designed for legibility across print, web, and mobile interfaces. This font has a wide variety of weights, making it flexible enough to use in almost any application.

American Captain

American Captain is an eye-catching typeface appropriate for banners, headlines and signs. It should be used sparingly, and reserved for situations where a bold, high-impact appearance is important to the design.
