Blue and orange are the official colors of the university. Our colors are a distinguishing feature of our identity.
Colors can be printed either with PMS colors or through a 4-color (CMYK) process. Most often, you will be sending files to a vendor with CMYK values. Please use the corresponding CMYK values as opposed to having the vendor (or design software) auto convert your PMS into CMYK. Auto converting or relying on vendors may result in the wrong CMYK formulas. Please note, there is no need to convert CMYK, RGB, or HEX for uncoated printing. You only need to worry about uncoated if you are printing with PMS colors.
When creating files to pe placed on a website or social media, files should be in RGB. You can also use the HEX colors for HTML elements.
Bright orange can be a challenging color to work with; a suggested complementary color palette is shown with the corresponding color codes. These colors should only be utilized as accent colors.
