Best Practices

  • Banner Image size for full screen - width size 1280px by height 400px maximum
  • Banner image size for mobile screen - width 600px by height 400px
  • No acronyms
  • Avoid prominently displayed brands
  • Department logos are acceptable
  • Take into consideration color contrast
  • A good technique to find the size of an image is to find what image looks best on the page, see the size in Cascade, then make all other images that size. Screencast on finding the image size in Cascade.

Site maintainers do not have access to change the banner image displayed on the homepage. Contact Web Services for support.
