Designing Inspired Style Guides

by Andy Clarke

Published January 10, 2017 in Design

“Style guide” is an umbrella term for several types of design documentation; static style or visual identity guides, voice and tone, front-end code guidelines or component/pattern libraries. These all offer something different but often have something in common. They look ugly enough to have been designed by someone who enjoys configuring a router. In this fast-paced talk, Andy demonstrates ways to improve how style guides look and make them better at communicating design information to creatives without it getting in the way of what technical people need.
