The Michigan State University Masthead, Search Tool, and Standard Footer were designed to provide a high level of flexibility for web designers and developers.
Each element can be integrated easily with existing MSU websites without extensive redevelopment or coding. Examples of properly branded websites are provided below.
Complete design files, web-ready graphics, and code examples are available for download. (See Resources and Downloads)
[Removed all web design examples (sections 11.2 thru 11.7)]
Site identification is provided by the site name that displays in the site header area below the MSU Masthead. Two versions are available:
Multi-line – two or three lines that identify the website unit and parent or affiliate unit*
* The first line should refer to the website currently in use (similar to the one line site name example), with a reverse hierarchical order displaying the site's univeristy affiliations.
The site name block, regardless of its content, should provide a single hyperlink back to the current site's homepage.
