Renfrewshire Council colours

Colour is a key part of our visual identity. We have two colour palettes that are used across all our corporate work.

For digital applications always use the RGB values for each colour. If printing professionally, for example at the Document Solution Centre, use the exact CMKY values specified. Hex codes are for web and Pantone® and RAL codes for professional use can be requested from the Design Team.

Bright colour palette

Our bright colours are reflective of the life and vitality of Renfrewshire – of the values, culture, and people of our communities. They are warm and vibrant and work well with each other. Bright colours are used in our core shapes and can be used for signage, icons, and typography.
