Design Principles from gov.uk
I will be doing my first Rooster Talk at The Glove Factory on Friday 8th November on The 10 Principles of Good Design. I won’t ruin the story and write a blog post about it just yet, but I hope this related post will be enough for now.
I was intrigued to see a tweet about gov.uk’s own version of design principles. Although it has a slightly different purpose, it’s fascinating to see what they view as important.
Their 10 Government Design Principles are:
Start with users needs
Design with data
Do the hard work to make it simple
Iterate then iterate again
This is for everyone
Build digital services not websites
Be consistent not uniform
Make things open it makes things better
There are also some nicely designed posters which you can download for free.
