Our Colors

Overview

Our colors say a lot about who we are. They help identify us at a glance and set the mood for each of our pieces, bringing an energy and vibrancy to our communications.

This set of colors should become recognizable as distinct to Bowie State University. Using this palette will ensure a cohesive expression of our brand.

Our palette was selected from the Pantone Matching System (PMS), the printing industry standard. Four-color process values and digital color mixes were derived from the PMS colors. Further details appear below.
