Graphical Elements

  • The official UNCG colors are gold, white, and navy blue. For details, see UNCG Brand Elements: Colors. The Information Technology Services (ITS) templates are designed using these colors because our Web pages are considered to be official University publications.
  • Background images and colors (other than white) are generally not permitted. They tend to hinder the readability of a Web page. In some cases, a background color may be used to help distinguish between table elements, or for highlighting a menu choice.
  • Text links should be set to Navy (003366) when not selected, changing to Gray (999999) when selected.
  • Images should be in JPEG, GIF, or PNG format. They should be no wider than 475 pixels and no taller than 400 pixels. Each image should have a short description attached to it in the form of an alt tag.
