Liberal Democrat web colour palette

Grit & Oyster often does work on websites associated with the Liberal Democrats. I try to ensure that these websites conform to the corporate style of the national party.

An official colour palette was included in the style guide published by the national party. Unfortunately this colour palette, while specified in RGB and Pantone values, was not specified in the hexidecimal format commonly used within web code. Also I have learnt that the palette used on the national Liberal Democrat website does not conform precisely to the palette included in the style guide. Although, this is probably sensible as some of the colours don’t work so well when displayed on the screen.

To deal with these issues I have created my own Lib Dem colour palette for use on websites. I have made this publicly available on this website on a page which has details of both the direct translation from the style guide and the palette that I came up with. It can be found at the following link:
