Color Usage Guide


Nothing is tied to a university’s identity more than its colors. The proper use of this approved color palette is essential in order to provide distinction and consistency to the University’s brand. The official school colors of the University of Idaho are silver (PMS 877 metallic) and gold (PMS 874 metallic). Black, white and grays are always acceptable, and a tertiary palette of accent colors can also be effective when used properly. Please refer to the Color Usage Guide for instructions.
