Explanation of the colour systems

CMYK
CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Key, i.e. for full colour printing. The CMYK files of the logo have the correct translation of LEI-blue for full colour printed material. Full colour offset is suitable for publications with more colours (such as colour photographs). Smaller print runs can also be digitally printed.

PMS
PMS is an abbreviation of PANTONE® Matching System. These files contain a ‘spot colour’, which must be printed in a specially produced blue ink (PANTONE® 280), in accordance with the specifications of PANTONE® Inc. Printing with spot colours is suitable for publications with no more than three colours, such as the correspondence series.

RGB
RGB (Red/Green/Blue) colours are used on screens. The secondary colours can serve to differentiate between study programmes. Each faculty has its own colour. The secondary colours can also be freely used as accent colours, within charts and diagrams etc. 

We have adapted the colour value of the University blue for screen use, such as PowerPoint presentations or websites.

N.B.:
The colours shown on this page cannot be used as a reference. For this, you must use the relevant original colour samples. PANTONE® is a trade mark of PANTONE®, Inc.
