Overarching Color Palette

The University of Dayton's overarching color palette includes the Dayton red (PMS 200) and blue (PMS 288) along with supporting neutral colors. Also, if type is to be set in black—as opposed to white or a color—it is preferred that copy be set in 90 percent black.

Graduate Color Palette

The following palette of four colors is the official color palette for the University of Dayton's graduate branding materials. Used along with the University's overarching color palette, the graduate colors provide an added level of sophistication and maturity while maintaining the brand's overarching energy and optimism. While these colors may be used occasionally for marketing materials in other sectors of the University, designers are required to use only the official four colors and overarching University color palette when creating graduate materials.

Notes

- The above colors are the base colors from which you should work. Colors can shift slightly to accommodate photography and/or typography.

- When using any of these colors in a transparent text box or banner, the opacity should be adjusted for readability. A 90 percent setting is usually a good rule of thumb to follow.
