Color Palette

Specs for our primary and accent colors were created with you in mind, and we invite you to use them when developing your own materials.

Web Accessibility

Using TXST brand colors on the web

Web accessibility means that websites, tools, and technologies are designed and developed so that all people can use them. In Texas State web content, all color combinations must meet the AA standard of 4.5:1 for smaller text and 3:1 for large-sized or bold text. In the Gato editor, section and font color combos are already designed to meet these standards. Please check color contrast when combining colors.
