18F Releases Web Design Guidelines & Code Resource for Govt Developers

The General Services Administration‘s 18F organization has unveiled an open source library of web design guidelines and code intended for government designers and developers.

Will Sullivan, an 18F product lead, wrote in a blog entry posted Monday that the first version of the U.S. Web Design Standards includes code and guidelines for forms, typography, buttons, alerts and others.

He said the resource is free and 18F’s team can work with federal agencies to create custom features or conduct training on standards implementation.

Agencies have used 18F’s standards on more than 100 sites and services that reach nearly 20 million users per month, according to Sullivan.
