Orange is the primary color and an integral part of our brand. It is a bold, confident and vibrant color, one that is unique to Oregon State University in Oregon, the Pacific Northwest and the Pac-12 Conference. Using the Oregon State orange prominently on all communications reinforces the brand and taps into what audiences already recognize as Oregon State.
This versatile color palette is inspired by Oregon’s natural landscapes, along with the university's work in areas such as sustainability, agriculture, health and technology. The colors also represent the personality of Oregon State, especially when combined with photos that depict our people and their impacts.
