[Tex/LaTex] Set custom title colour in beamer title page


I am trying to replicate the style of an Impress presentation that has a yellow on brown title in the title page. I have created a .sty file that opens with:


% ---------------------------------
% color definitions

% ---------------------------------
% set colors of elements

% set the title color

In the .tex documents things are pretty normal:



% -----------
% Set new style


% -- Section title pages

% Title and authors

\title{My presentation}

\subtitle{Coded with \LaTeX}

\author[Jane Smith]{Jane Smith}

\institute[The Institute]{The Institute}



% Title frame

% load backgound for title 

{ \setbeamertemplate{footline}{} % no footer on title

But the end result looks like this:

enter image description here

How can I apply the colour defined as new_yellow to the title page title?

Update: regarding the compiler, I am using pdflatex from TeX Live 2015:

$ pdflatex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.16 (TeX Live 2015/Debian) (preloaded format=pdflatex)
 restricted \write18 enabled.

It turns out text colour must be explicitly applied when the title is inserted. This is something like: \textcolor{new_yellow}{\inserttitle}}. The same holds true for other elements in the title page, like sub-title or author names. Here is a full example of the title page in the .sty file:

% ---------------------------------
% title page

\defbeamertemplate*{title page}{customized}[1][]
