BYU–Hawaii Brand

Colors

Special colors have been chosen to represent the University. Two colors make up the BYU–Hawaii colors set: crimson and gold. Black, gray, and white may also be acceptable. These colors represent the institution and should be used generously on high-visibility communication pieces.

This color system is also used in the official BYU–Hawaii logos as well as the Seasider logos. Do not change the color of the logos to any other color. When color printing is not an option, 100 percent black is an acceptable alternative. Use white when reversing a logo out of a background.

These recommended accent colors have been selected to support our official BYUH colors and not to be used in place of them. Overuse of these accent colors would detract from our visual identity. Use these accents colors and as well as any other color on approximately 20% of your design. In some cases, other colors may be used to better support a message or for a well-planned out campaign. Avoid color extremes (fluorescent colors, excessively dark shades, or pastels).
