Our elements color palette of Onyx, Iron, Charcoal and Steel represents an array of shades of varying degrees of darkness, allowing for a striking visual contrast in a neutral, monochromatic palette.
Our functional color palette of Grass, Alert, Rock and Concrete is applied to UI elements. Grass indicates action. Alert signals warning, error and other notifications. Rock and Concrete show lines and dividers.
Smooth, monochromatic color transitions may be used to add dimension and interest to backgrounds and other spaces to fill these regions with a depth of color. Gradients of Pine to Grass and Pebble to Sand are acceptable.
Our main identity colors are Pine and Gold for both spot and 4-color process print applications. Spot PMS color is preferred, but CMYK builds are acceptable if calibrated for coated or uncoated stocks.
In keeping with gold’s rare and precious qualities, Gold Metallic should be used sparingly.
