Evergreen brand names

Brand names

In addition to establishing its own visual identity, Evergreen must respect copyrights and trademarks used by other entities, as well as define and protect our own from potentially negative association and misuse. To that end, we have established brand name guidelines governing appropriate use and acceptable “nicknames.”

Color palette

Colors

Our core color palette is to be use across all communications and applications, including as background colors and body copy. Our secondary Greenery color palette draws from the natural beauty surrounding our campus. A third Vibrant palette reflects the energy and creativity of our people.

Avenir and Chaparral typeface samples

Typefaces

We use a limited set of consistent, high quality typefaces in all of our outward-facing marketing materials to ensure that everything has a shared voice. You can give your own designs that “Evergreen look” by licensing the same typefaces, or by using freely available alternatives that are common on all desktop computers and mobile devices.

Page layouts and interfaces

If you’re creating content in one of Evergreen’s site sections, or if you’re developing full-blown apps, it’s important to create consistent designs across all of Evergreen’s websites and applications. Following the guidelines of the interface style guide will reduce confusion for the people who use our digital materials and maintain an easy-to-use experience.
