Header sizes

Medium offers three sizes of headers for your publication homepage: small, medium, and large.

Small headers may use title only or logo only and are left aligned.


Medium headers can include a title only, a logo only or both together, are left-aligned and may contain a background image (with a minimum width of 1500px and an aspect ratio of 8:1).


Large headers can include a title only, a logo only or both together, may be centered or left-aligned and may optionally include a background image (with a minimum dimension of 1500px wide and 750px high and an aspect ration of 2:1).


Header colors

Set a hex color code to use in your Medium publication by clicking on the circle next to "Color" and entering in a six digit color code (do not add the # sign).


You can also specify where the color will show up:

  • Subtle: Choosing "Subtle" applies the selected color to highlights on publication posts, your publication's follow button, recommend button and author name.
  • Bold: Choosing "Bold" applies the same color changes as Subtle and adds a background color to your header and top of publication posts.
