Color Palettes

The central websites of the Missouri State campuses have similar designs with different color palettes. When choosing your website colors, please consider using the color palette of your campus. Using this color palette helps align your website with the appropriate prospective undergraduate marketing efforts and the appropriate campus.

Avoid using the official color of other campuses as the primary color of your website. For example, Missouri State-Springfield websites should avoid using blue as a primary color because this can cause confusion with websites on the Missouri State-West Plains campus.

In the following palettes, the official color of the campus is marked with two asterisks(**), and this color is used as the primary color on the websites. The other colors are used to accent the web pages. The letters/numbers associated with each color are the hexadecimal and RGB color values used to achieve the color.
