Celebrating 50 Years in Publishing!

The University of Alberta Press celebrates 50 years of publishing in 2019. In anticipation of this milestone, we embarked on a project to re-imagine our visual identity. Our goal was to honour our legacy while reflecting our current publishing program, which is increasingly diverse, urban, and multidisciplinary.

We worked with Susan Colberg (Visual Communication Design at the University of Alberta) to create an identity that shows a Press that is critical, contemporary, and engaged. She chose an accompanying typeface that is uniquely Canadian: Cartier, created by the eminent graphic and type designer Carl Dair to mark Canada’s centenary in 1967.

Our website has a new look and so does our blog, which we renamed ALLCAPS.

Everyone at the Press looks forward to continuing our work with authors and scholars on behalf of our many communities of readers.

Thank you for your continuous support!
