The Red Hat® brand standards are the source code of our brand. Using these brand standards as the starting point for all projects ensures that every interaction with Red Hat reflects our brand personality, aligns to our brand strategy, and uses a consistent visual language. Through consistency we create an authentic relationship and credibility with our customers, partners, and contributors.
Core brand elements
We always lead with Red Hat.
Our logo is a red hat with the words Red Hat.
Our core colors are red, black, and white.
Our font family has three styles.
Red Hat’s brand expression is how we adapt the way we apply our brand standards to meet the needs of our customers, partners, and associates. Function comes first—all of our communications should be clear and helpful. When we want to tell a more nuanced story, we can introduce expressive elements like colors from our extended color wheel, stylized typography, illustration, and more.
