Color is incredibly powerful in its ability to drive human emotion. Harnessing this power is critical in connecting the viewer to the Taylor brand.
Taylor’s palette is bold and timeless, balanced by energetic and welcoming tones. Collectively, this color palette communicates Taylor’s story of purposeful excellence. The primary design system encompasses virtually all recruiting and admissions-centric communication, and is the front-facing palette for the University.
Taylor Purple is the predominant element of Taylor’s brand and should be the lead and most prominent color, generally 50% or more of any color used. The secondary colors of Legacy Gold and Iron Sharpening Gray are used for support and contrast with purple and for conveying a sense of excellence. They should be approximately 25% of all color used. Tertiary colors of Silent Night, Community Plunge, and Indiana Sunset are used to express energy and spirit when appropriate. They should not overwhelm Taylor Purple and generally should not exceed 25% of color usage.
