UX Foundations: Style Guides and Design Systems
A style guide is the document that sets the tone for how your organization communicates and how it designs its products. It incorporates branding, company philosophy, and an understanding of your customers and your market. It may describe the visual, written, and sometimes even spoken styles you use. Agencies, freelancers, designers, and developers will employ the guide to make sure they are on message and on brand—and avoid wasted time and effort.
