University logo color options

Our University logo 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 University logo is darker than the background color on which it is displayed, it is referred to as “positive.” When the logo 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 logo color option for its intended display.
