Accent Palette

Rich Colors

Although our primary palette should lead in most materials, certain instances require additional options. For those circumstances, we have this accent palette. In general, these colors should be used sparingly, but they can be more prominent in some instances, such as communications about campus events and one-off impact pieces. Under no circumstances should any of these colors become the predominant color for a school, center, institute, or department.
