MSU Web Style Guide
The experience of browsing content, accessing information, and using web-based services and tools on Michigan State University websites affects a visitor's perception of our university. To ensure intuitive, useful, and positive web experiences for our audiences, it is important that MSU web-based communications and interfaces reflect the university’s overall brand identity consistently and effectively.
The MSU Web Style Guide contains recommendations for the design and development of Michigan State University web pages. The specifications and examples within this document are intended to enable graphic design and web development professionals to create new web pages that include the core design and formatting used by the MSU home page and second-level and executive university leadership web pages.
Additions to the guide are planned, so please check back for updates. Please contact Communications and Brand Strategy if you have questions regarding the use of the MSU Web Style Guide for the design and development of custom MSU websites or applications.
