Original graphics and color layout

The color layout for the Winter Universiade 2019 look is based on combining austere, “cold” shades of blue and bright, “hot” purple. This symbolizes the combination of two sources – severe Siberian nature and warmth of human hearts. The pattern consists of 6 colors, each of which symbolizes a certain element. The symbols’ basic colors are white – the color of snow, purity; pink (fuchsia) – the color of friendliness and warmth; blue – the color of ice and cold, severe Siberian winter. Three more colors are used additionally in the said palette.

The original graphics of the Games look are based on the dynamics of numerous differently directed, parallel graphic lines, symbolizing sport as movement, striving forward as well as all dynamic elements of Siberian nature: strong wind, sliding on ice, rushing forward river. The linear raster’s structure and direction remind of snow tracks made by a Ratrac machine. Iridescent ice crystals gave the idea for creation of the pattern.
