Front End Design Style Guide

Introduction

This style guide is a reference tool for understanding how pages under the NIH enterprise architecture website should look and behave. It covers all aspects of front end design and describes a design system that has evolved through careful consideration of the user needs and OCITA’s business drivers as identified in user research, scope definition and participatory design sessions with end users.

Visual, structural, content and front-end technology guidelines were defined to maintain consistency and deliver an usable site to end users.

While this style guide is defined with the best knowledge about technical implementation of the NIH enterprise architecture website, it may be necessary to amend or refine certain aspects of the design system to address performance or other technical issues during following phases of development. In such case, this style guide will require updating to reflect any changes to allow this guide to deliver a consistent and effective user experience in any future development.
