Color Palette & Fonts
Colors are a critical element of the Servite High School visual system. The approved colors help build strong recognition and awareness. The more consistently used, the more people will come to associate them with Servite High School.
Primary colors should take the lead in the vast majority of communication pieces and be used most prominently. The secondary colors are meant to be supportive, but should never overpower our primary colors.
Please incorporate both the primary colors and secondary colors precisely in the shades shown here to ensure consistency.
Four-color process printing:
- Rich black – The rich black build we recommend is 60, 40, 40, 100. Use rich black when printing four-color process to produce a deeper black tone in large, solid areas of black. Rich black should not be used on small type or fine rules as it can cause cause a misregister or for the type to plug up and lose fine detail.
- True Black – For small details use true black at 0, 0, 0, 100.
- Ink - When screen printing, every effort should be made to color match the ink to our official Pantone colors. A sample can be provided to assist in this effort.
- Thread - When embroidering, every effort should be made to color match the thread to our official Pantone colors. A sample can be provided to assist in this effort.
- A few common thread colors are Golden Tan 5870, Marathon RAYON Thread 1338, and Salus AR399.
Secondary colors can be used to complement your brand identity for both digital and print purposes only. These secondary colors have been thoughtfully selected to maintain a harmonious visual presence while allowing the primary brand colors to remain dominant. Secondary colors are designed to play a supportive role, enriching your brand's visual palette without overpowering it. To ensure cohesion and balance, these colors should not occupy more than 30% of the overall design space.
