Web style guide
The University of Virginia Library has a specific style guide with specifications that should be followed on all web properties existing on the domain *.library.virginia.edu, including all subdomains. If you find something missing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
The University of Virginia Library’s official color palette has six colors, which should be used in specific ways in order to reinforce and maintain our brand as well as look and feel. Consistent use of colors and fonts on Library websites as well as print materials adds to the Library User’s experience.
The following color palette has been approved by the Library Administration and Web Communications to be used on the Library’s websites:
Light Blue and Green are also used occasionally
In general, the background color of Library web pages and applications should be white. Other background accent colors used are Light Blue (#E4E9F2), Cream (#F1E5C7), and Light Gray (#E6E7E8)
In general, the Library’s “brand” has a U.Va. blue header with the stacked U.Va. Library logo on the top left corner. There is also a horizontal version of the logo. Both logo files can be found on the “Logo” page of this styleguide.
On all pages there should be a top bar with breadcrumb navigation that goes back to the University of Virginia home page and the main University of Virginia website. The background color for this bar should be dark blue (#0c1a32).
body and paragraph text should be black (#000.)
Headings and Subheadings
Heading 2 or h2 elements should be green (#7AC143) and “Prenton”
Heading 3 or h3 elements should be teal and “Chapparal Pro”
body, p, ul, ol elements should all be “FF Dagny Web Pro”, with fallback of “Helvetica Neue”
Links and buttons
Links or a elements should be U.Va. Blue, and navigation menus are a lighter version of U.Va. Blue #0c1a32.
