BRANDING

Hope College has a strong tradition of intercollegiate athletics. A distinct sub-brand celebrates that heritage while bringing clarity and cohesion to the visual expression of the sports program.

Hope’s colors are specific and restricted: Orange (PMS 166) and Blue (PMS 289).

The orange anchor is the primary logo for representing Hope teams. The orange letter H is a secondary logo.
