The RISC-V logo represents our community at the very highest level and is vitally important to our overall brand. The logo acts as a signature, an identifier, a stamp of quality and should always be the most consistent element in all RISC-V related communications efforts.

In order to maintain this consistency, a few simple guidelines should be followed.

  • Logo

    The RISC-V logo should never be recreated or typeset. Only official logo files should be used in communications.

  • Primary Usage

    The primary color option for our logo is Berkeley Blue (Pantone® 282). It is intended to be used on lighter backgrounds and images in order to maintain legibility.

  • Primary Usage: Alternate

    Another acceptable color option is to reverse the logo out to White on darker backgrounds and images.

  • Limited-Use Logo

    The logo can appear in Black only for black-and-white and grayscale scenarios.

RISC-V Trade Name

The “RISC-V” trade name is a registered trade mark of RISC-V International.  All uses of the name RISC-V must be consistent with these guidelines. The name must always be written in block letters with a hyphen between the C and V of RISC-V.

Always use:

  • RISC-V, or
  • RISC-V International

Never use:

  • Risc V
  • RISC V
  • RISC_V

RISC-V Colors

Beyond the RISC-V logo and name, color is probably the most recognizable aspect of our overall brand identity. The colors we use have been selected to reflect our bold, diverse community and they’ve been named in recognition of the RISC-V UC Berkeley heritage. Using color appropriately is one of the easiest ways to make sure our member materials reflect a cohesive RISC-V brand.

When using color builds, always use the color values listed. They have been selected for the best reproduction in print and on screen.
