4.0 Colours

Our unique colour palette helps us to stand out and be recognised. It also echoes the bold, directness of our brand.

4.01 Primary colour palette

Yellow can brighten up our customers day no matter what time of year. Spring flowers, summer sun, autumn leaves and a cosy yellow winter scarf.

Yellow helps us stand out as the bright, cheerful and easy brand that we want our customers to recognise. But getting the right balance is important…

Yellow colour swatch

Yellow

Yellow is our key brand colour. It should be present in all brand communications. Without yellow, it’s just not Zanussi.

White colour swatch

White

White is yellow’s cool sidekick and should follow wherever yellow goes. White is very important for keeping the yellow fresh and contemporary.

Light Grey colour swatch

Light Grey

Light grey adds a dash of quality. Like the stainless steel finish on a Zanussi oven, or the gentle tones of our white appliances.

Black colour swatch

Black

Black should only be used for text and icons.

Avoid large areas of black, as it stops the yellow from staying fresh.

4.02 Getting it right

When should I go full on with yellow? When should I tone down the yellow? Here are some examples.

Dominant Yellow

For maximum standout, e.g. retail.

Accent Yellow

Where subtlety is required, e.g. lifestyle photography.

4.03 Secondary colours

From time to time it may be necessary to compliment the primary colours with other colours. Like props in photography and film, or links in an App or website. Here are some recommendations.

Italian green and red

These colours are used in the Zanussi logo and are great when doing food photography.

4.04 Tertiary colours

Selected tertiary colours can be used for props and backgrounds in photography and film. They complement the primary and secondary colours because they are fresh, clean and bright. Tertiary colours should be used sparingly and shouldn’t dominate the primary colours. 

Below is a selection of colours that compliment the primary and supporting colours.
