Yesterday we published some new design guides in the Government Service Design Manual.
There's a new guide to styling and coding the basic page elements, with sections on layout, colour, typography, forms, buttons, data, images and icons.
GOV.UK design patterns
There's also a new section on common design patterns. Things like progress indicators, dates-of-birth, address fields and form structure.
The design patterns were developed in collaboration with designers and researchers across government, using a wiki (Hackpad) to share and discuss our ideas in the open.
If you want to get involved, join us on the wiki.
