SLU’s new colour palette takes inspiration from nature and the colour variation of the seasons. It emphasises the red and green of the SLU logo.

26 colours to choose from 

SLU’s colour palette consists of 26 different deep, clear and light shades. The colours can be combined in various ways depending on the tonality you want to express. 

All colours work both in print and digital channels. Accessibility meets the requirements for public authorities. The colours can be used for colour plates, video graphics, banners and illustrations.

The colour palette is available to all SLU operations.
