Title Banner


Title Banners include:

  • Heading (red, all caps) in a white text box in the shape of a parallelogram
    • Positioning and width of textbox on top of the background image can be customized
  • Optional smaller subheading for the "parent" section on top of the heading (black, all caps)
  • Background image
  • Color overlay (optional)
  • Two colored triangles on the top left and bottom right corners (color can be customized)

Title Banners must be used with a Landing Page or Homepage page layout, and must be created in consultation with the MarCom Web Team so that correct code can be implemented.

Please submit a project request form to Marketing Communications if you would like MarCom to create a Title Banner for your Seattle U website. 

Available in zones:

  • Users must be added to the "Graphic Designers" permissions group in order to use this content type
  • We restrict access to this content type because it is amongst the most difficult content types to configure correctly if you do not have experience in web design. Banners must adhere to brand guidelines, and must be designed and coded so that it looks good at all screen widths.
