Secondary colours

Dark blue, light blue, light grey and lime green have been chosen to work well with the cyan, and are reserved to be used sparingly - for example for Powerpoint graphs or for information boxes in a long document. The secondary colours should never be used as the main colour in any design.

Accent colours

Accent colours are used to highlight or differentiate small elements on a piece. Accent colours should be used sparingly, meaning no more than 5% of the layout.

Remember to use plenty of white space to make the content stand out.
