Spotlight callouts are intended to visually highlight something or someone related
to the information on the page.
These callouts feature a 465-pixels-wide image, a short blurb of text and a single link, if needed. Spotlight callouts are a great
way to highlight a student, alumnus or faculty member.
The headline bar on these callouts has the option for including a category (in smaller
type) and a headline (in larger type). Some typical categories are Faculty Spotlight,
Student Spotlight, Program Spotlight, etc. The headline is usually the name of the
person or item being spotlighted. If you are using just one line of text above your
image, use the headline style and omit the category.
All callouts enlarge on a mobile device so avoid using headshots as spotlight images.
An interesting photo shot in a lab, classroom or the subject's natural environment
works much better. Be sure to upload your image at 465 pixels wide so it's viewed at full
size without enlarging to fit a mobile phone screen.
Choosing a Color
When choosing a color for your callout, try to coordinate with a color in the image
or choose one that complements it. If there is more than one callout on your page,
do not use more than one secondary color on your page's callouts.
