Branded Resources

A variety of branded resources are available for download, such as letterhead, presentation templates, etc. If you need additional support or require support with a project, contact Marketing and Communications.

Brand Fonts

The brand fonts used in Meadowridge marketing and communications materials are Gentona and the theSerif. These are paid and copyrighted fonts and not available for install on multiple computers.

There are free fonts available that can be used as alternates, both available online:

Both fonts are part of a "font family", which means that they are available in different weights (bold, extra-bold, light, etc.). You will need to install all of the .tff files to access the entire family.
