1. KCRW Content Logos

KCRW logos are utilized for videos and graphics according to their content. Each piece of content is divided into one of three categories: Music, News, or Culture.

Each of these three categories is associated with its requisite color. The KCRW logo for each of these categories will always be fill, with the fill color being the associated category color. The KCRW logo knockout will always be black.

KCRW Music is MAGENTA (#DE33A5)

  • Includes Morning Becomes Eclectic, Metropolis, Rhythm Planet, etc.


  • Includes To The Point, Left, Right & Center, etc.

KCRW Culture is YELLOW (#FFC91C)

  • Includes Good Food, The Treatment, Design & Architecture, etc.

Whenever the generic KCRW logo is used on its own (without a category), the fill color will be AZURE (#47C3D3).
