Dynamic Gradients

To ensure structure and cohesion among the designs, each gradient uses 3 colors from the approved 15 brand colors. This allows for a variety of color combinations that work on their own or together as a unit. These colors are imagined to be used as playful backdrops, categorizing talent, spotlight features, and interesting print materials.
