Official Colors for Manufacturing of Officially Licensed Products: Burnt Orange - PMS 7584c and 18-1248TCX; White

The official colors of the University of Texas at Austin are burnt orange and white. The burnt orange color is truly unique and distinctive, and is one of the biggest differentiators for our brand when compared to other institutions in this country and across the world.

Given the powerful association that the burnt orange color has to our brand, it’s critical that we present a consistency of color across all brand touchpoints. However, because of the uniqueness of the color, the ability to reproduce it in a consistent manner, particularly in manufacturing of officially licensed products, has evolved with the capabilities of technology.  As part of our strategy to create an exclusive line of apparel, we saw an opportunity to use the latest technology to pinpoint the shade of burnt orange that most resembles the original intention for the color and that our fans expect. This will present a consistent brand presence at retail as we continue to strengthen our brand.
