About the Wordmark
The wordmark was created from a modernized version of a typeface designed by Rudolph Ruzicka, first shown in Studies in Type Design, published by the Dartmouth Library in 1968.
Ruzicka was a Czech-born illustrator, etcher, and book and typeface designer. His work can be seen on the Dartmouth Medal and the bicentennial seal. Ruzicka's original typeface design features inscription-style caps and distinct, tapered serifs. These carefully crafted details create a voice that is both elegant and authoritative.
