Let’s take a few minutes to review some of your Design Notebooks.
Why do you need Design Guidelines?
Some examples of Design Guidelines:
- TCNJ Graphic Identity Standard Guidelines
- Tesla Motors Branding Guidelines
- Xfinity X1 Developer Guideline
- Google’s various product guidelines (pick one)
Together with your team, review the example design guidelines listed above. Answer the following questions:
- What guideline elements are common across most of the design guidelines?
- Which guideline is most applicable as a template for your project?
- What elements are present in your project that need to be documented that are not present in any of the guidelines listed above?
Let’s take a few minutes review your analysis of the example design guidelines.
Together with your team, create an outline for your project’s design guidelines. Include:
- a title
- subheads for each guidance section (logo, typography, color palette, layout, device responsiveness, message size, copy style, etc)
With your team, continue refining your project’s design guidelines.
- Fill out each section you created during class, including visuals where appropriate to demonstrate how to implement your design elements.
Design Notebook (Individually)
- Create a new slide in your Design Notebook and title it “Design Guidelines”
- Include a link to your team’s Design Guidelines document
