The colors used in the logo—VIMS blue and teal—are bold, sophisticated colors that should be used consistently across all pieces where color printing is possible and in all digital media. Together, these two colors are an important visual cue that will help lend consistency and strength to VIMS' communications. The supporting colors are inspired by natural elements and are meant to compliment the logo, while adding uniqueness and allowing flexibility within each collateral piece or digital media component.
