Color expresses a brand’s mood. Before people read a single word, they see and feel it. Color stirs emotion instantly. Use it to evoke feeling. SAS isn’t a one-dimensional, one-color company. We’re a global brand with a diverse yet cohesive color system that expresses our personality across cultures and contexts.

Vibrant Color Palette

A spectrum of vibrant colors helps us communicate and evoke emotion. They set a tone and tell a specific story. The vibrant colors add richness to our work and complement the brand color palette. They are used in our graph colors and our imagery. 

White space isn’t always white. Use an open background with a simple layout that is not cluttered with too many design elements.SAS blue should be used in every palette. We can use blue to create hierarchy and balance within the composition.. To create a palette that feels like SAS, avoid adding more than two vibrant colors beyond. Too many vibrant colors can feel chaotic or silly.
