Roadrunner Symbol color options

Once approval for display of the Roadrunner Symbol as a stand-alone graphic identifier is obtained from Strategy, Marketing and Communications, the guidelines stated here will help ensure its integrity. Our Roadrunner Symbol consists of specific hues of blue and red. Accurate reproduction of these colors, referred to as MSU Denver Blue and MSU Denver Red, is critical to maintaining a consistent brand image. See Brand Colors for their specific color formulas per media. When the Roadrunner Symbol is darker than the background color on which it is displayed, it is referred to as “positive.” When the Symbol is lighter than the background color on which it is displayed, it is referred to as “reverse.” Within these two categories, there are full-color and one-color options from which you may choose. The preference is to display the full-color version wherever practical. Often, only one color is permitted, or practical. In these instances, the preference is to display the one-color version that utilizes MSU Denver background colors. If this is not a practical option, then the one-color black on any light- to mid-value background (or white on any mid- to dark-value background) is approved. See Color Selection to determine the most appropriate Symbol color option for its intended display.
