Berkeley MEng Wordmark
The tessellation pattern represents the idea of connection/networking and adds texture and depth when overlaid onto photography. The tessellation pattern should always be black, set to 20 percent opacity in Adobe Creative Suite®. Other graphic elements may be found on brand.berkeley.edu.
The Berkeley color palette has two layers: primary and secondary palettes, each with its own subgroupings of colors. These color palettes have been modified for use online. Six of the original brand colors—Founder’s Rock, Medalist, Lap Lane, Soybean, Pacific and Bay Fog—have been altered subtly to insure web accessibility. It is important to maintain a sense of hierarchy, balance and harmony when using the Berkeley color palette. Our color system is extremely flexible, but exercise restraint. Unique and exciting color palettes can be created from as few as three or four colors in addition to the primary Berkeley palette.
