Color Palette

The Office of Communications created this color palette to work with the maroon and gold of the University. It includes the University's secondary color palette.

Maroon indicates importance: universal header, primary navigation, donation buttons, links.

Gold indicates the visitor’s present location: active tab in navigation and sub-navigation, tabs on the Bio pages. We're also demonstrating the basic grid patterns that can be used to enhance a unit's website.

The following tools can help you coordinate web colors with other materials you produce:

AHC Color Palette Reference Sheet —includes CMYK combinations for print

Download color swatches —upload .ase files to Adobe products (e.g., InDesign)
