Arial is a modern, open-source font. It can be used in all sorts of printed matter. Added as a house style font because unlike the Parry , this font does not require a licence.
N.B. Arial replaces the Verdana font in PowerPoint and Excel templates and in Google Slides.
Parry is the current house style font for print material. The font has two versions: Normal Grotesque, the sans-serif version with a modern character and Parry Normal, the version with serif and a classic look. If this more classic look is desirable, Parry Normal can be chosen. Each faculty/service unit will have at least one licence for this font (firstname.lastname@example.org). Design agencies that take a lot of UG commissions will purchase the font themselves (https://originaltype.com).
Note that Parry is no longer supported in its current form by design software such as by In Design, Illustrator en Photoshop. This may be a consideration to switch to Arial. Another possibility is to buy a modified Parry font (https://originaltype.com).
