The Department considers it vitally important that we respect all people by ensuring that our communications are inclusive, legible and accessible. Our corporate branding guidelines have been carefully designed to consider the language, colours and imagery we use, as well as the way we lay out our communications.

The most common form of colour blindness is red/green followed by yellow/blue. Our core colours are green, purple and grey with a palette of secondary colours. These colours help anchor our visual identity, give consistency to our communications and are accessible.
