Color Recommendations for CU

Color ideas for Colorado University


The official colors for Colorado University are silver, gold, black, and white. Here are some of my recommendations for primary, secondary, and tertiary colors that could complement these official colors:

Primary colors:

  • Dark Blue (#00274C): This color can provide a strong contrast to the official colors and represent stability and authority.

  • Maroon (#8C1D40): This color can provide a warm and inviting feel to the design while representing passion and energy.

Secondary colors:

  • Light Grey (#D3D3D3): This color can provide a light and modern feel to the design while complementing the official silver color.

  • Dark Green (#004C3F): This color can add a natural and organic feel to the design while complementing the official black color.

Tertiary colors:

  • Light Blue (#00AEEF): This color can add a refreshing and lively feel to the design while complementing the official gold color.

  • Orange (#F26D21): This color can add a playful and energetic feel to the design while complementing the official gold color.

Each of the four campuses of Colorado University has its own distinct character and identity. Here are some color recommendations that could represent each campus:

  • Primary: Dark Green (#004C3F) - This color could represent the natural beauty of the Boulder campus, which is nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.

  • Secondary: Silver (#C4C4C4) - This color could complement the official silver color and represent the modern and innovative spirit of the campus.

  • Secondary: Gold (#FFD700) - This color could complement the official gold color and represent the vibrant and diverse community of the campus.

  • Tertiary: Maroon (#8C1D40) - This color could add a bold and dynamic feel to the design and represent the passion and energy of the campus.
