Colors

PRIMARY PALETTE:

The primary Union College color is “garnet.” While it should be used for the Union College logo whenever possible, it need not be the dominant color in communications. Complementing garnet is a primary palette that includes Stone and Light Stone (which are suggestive of the stuccoed architecture across the campus) as well as gray and black. Wherever possible use Pantone® Matching System (PMS or spot) colors for the most accurate color matching. CMYK values have been provided for four color printing. In addition, RGB and HEX values are indicated for screen and Web applications.

SECONDARY PALETTE:

The secondary palette has been developed to be used in conjunction with garnet and the other colors of the primary palette to provide additional color options. They create a fresh and lively combination for charts, graphs and other graphic elements. While the metallic gold is intended to be printed only as a PMS or spot color, the remaining secondary colors are intended to be reproduced solely as CMYK for print applications. RGB and HEX values are indicated for screen and Web applications.
