Our color palette allows us to create content with a range of tones—from institutional to creative and expressive.

Primary

Our primary colors—black, white, and red—are intended to be used in a specific hierarchy. Red should be used to reinforce the Northeastern brand and should be incorporated into every piece of collateral.
