Primary UC Davis Colors

FOA uses the UC Davis official colors: blue and gold. These colors help us maintain brand consistency with the university. Use them as the dominant color palette for all internal and external visual presentations.

Secondary Color System

The secondary colors are complementary to our official colors, but are not recognizable identifiers for UC Davis. Secondary colors should be used sparingly. Use them to accent and support the primary color palette.
