The official colors of Ferris State University are the specific shades of Crimson ("Ferris Red") and Gold ("Ferris Gold") defined below. These specifications ensure consistency between our many representations of Ferris and help avoid accidental duplication of the official colors of other institutions.

Official publications and Web pages representing Ferris State University and made possible by university funding are required to apply these colors appropriately. With the exception of photography and white space, use of dominant colors other than the Ferris colors is prohibited.

Approximation or variation of these shades is prohibited without special permission by Marketing and Communications. Contact Christa Bull (x2332) or Nathan Clark (x2557) for assistance with appropriate use of color.

*HEX value colors differ from standard Pantone (PMS) for reasons of web accessibility. To follow Michigan and federal law, HEX value colors should be used when publications are presented on screen and where Ferris Red text is used on a Ferris Gold background, and vice versa.
