Colors & Typography

Colors

Our identity system only has four colors - Ram Black, True White, Highland Gold, and Highland Grey. We chose to limit these colors to keep costs down and to make it easy to reproduce our identity in a variety of mediums. Below are our colors with a few different ways to describe the colors. Sometimes someone will ask you for a PMS or Pantone number, or someone else might ask you for the HEX values that are used on the web; this information is provided below.

Typography

You usually don't think of type as a huge part of an identity system, but it is. The typeface (font) you use to produce newsletters, memos, notes to parents, etc., should all be the same. If you use our typeface consistently, soon you'll be able to recognize a document as "one of ours" without even reading it or seeing our logo.
