Other Contents of a Design Standard

While page templates are the core of a good design standard, other sections and materials are needed too. Some requirements and issues, such as those listed below, go across all the page types:

  • Header and footer designs

  • Error handling (pop-ups, inline error messages, embedded messages, and graphic treatments and formats for message wording)

  • Button labels (guidelines such as “Use Next to get the following page” and “Do not use Forward, Continue, , OK, Up, or Down”)

  • Justification of text

  • Alignment of labels and data fields

  • Formats for data (such as addresses, phone numbers, and so on)

  • Fonts

  • Restrictions on color usage
