The Department’s new corporate branding has strict guidelines for the application of colour. For all corporate publications text should be:
Black on white for large blocks of text
A bold colour on white for headings or short snippets (for example quotes)
In black or white, on a bold block of colour
Our corporate design guidelines specifically prohibit the use of any colour text on any colour background.
Although not specifically formulated to address colour blindness, we believe these design principles should avoid it being an issue for our corporate publications.
