Mimic company visual style in CV?

I will be moving in couple of months to another city and already started looking for potential companies to which I could apply for a job. Most of them have a defined brand, with specific color palletes and design styles on their websites. So I came up with an idea to create my CV looking as close to their brand style as possible, to stand out among other CVs. What I have in mind saying this is using their brand color, design styles (flat/material/ etc), font styles, maybe even specific words taken from their slogans. What drives this idea is thought it may make an impression we have more in common or make them like me more since I took and extra effort to customize my CV specificly for them.

On the other hand, I also have my doubts. Could an eployer be potentaily offended by me copying their style in which they propably put a lot of effort into?

Question:

Would it be a good idea, to mimic a company visuals in my CV when applying for a job?
