For each content style we have put together example color palettes. Use these palettes when "designer discretion" is selected for colors in the Vendor Dashboard. Each color palettes has four or five colors each. Keep color options to a primary and secondary color for the website design, and use images to highlight other available palette colors when possible.
Each content style includes guidance for the type of imagery that is common for that style. It also includes guidance for the use of graphics. When using stock images look for images with complementary colors. Use color overlays if needed to help better align with chosen style.
