Color Palette

The Rockefeller University color palette is comprised of two primary colors and nine secondary colors. The logo is always PMS 294 for the seal and PMS Warm Gray 11 for the tagline. If only one color can be used to reproduce the seal and tagline, they can then both be either PMS 294 or PMS Warm Gray 11. The seal and tagline may also be printed in Black or dropped out of a dark background. The PMS colors and their closest RGB counterparts (for Web use) are below.
