Secondary Colors

The secondary colors broaden the palette of approved blues and grays. These colors may be used to provide variety and visual interest without leaving the recognized palette. Secondary colors should be used in less than 50 percent of the whole palette for one piece.

Tints Anchor


To diversify the color palette, tints of colors may be used to complement primary, secondary, and tertiary colors. Tint colors should never be used in place of the primary colors, only as highlight colors.
