To support our brand and bring our words and images to life, we must present a strong and consistent visual identity. The coordinated use of our university logo along with a consistent typographic style, allows our campuses, colleges, schools and departments to represent themselves within the larger university. Our established garnet and black color scheme distinguishes us from other universities and an expanded secondary palette, inspired by our state's diverse natural surroundings, combine to create a vibrant range of color choices. A defined photo style allows us to tell our story through images that capture our unique personality. We use these design elements to create a unified visual identity
