The colour of Ramboll is cyan. That doesn't mean we paint everything cyan, but we use plenty of white space around the cyan to make it stand out - or in the case of cyan text boxes we make sure it stands out from the background.
Sometimes we just use a touch of cyan for a headline and that's enough. To make the cyan stand out we compliment it with black, grey and white.
Secondary coloursDark 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 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.
