Supporting Colour Palette

The University’s carefully chosen supporting colour palette allows design flexibility whilst still maintaining a coordinated approach to the University's brand.

Please don’t vary from this colour palette - you may only select from the colours outlined in the guidelines. Colours are not specific to users, areas or activities.

Note: When working with the colour palette, please ensure you use the same colour code as the colour mode eg CMYK or RGB. Colours have been selected to provide the optimum outcome within each colour mode and may not directly translate from one mode to the other.

The colour wheel outlines how to select complementary colours from the palette for tables and charts - you may also apply the colour wheel to your designs.
