The BBC’s global experience language

The BBC UX&D team has published a global experience language for the BBC’s digital service:

The GVL 3.0 guidelines are a reference point for all designers creating BBC websites (future iterations will also incorporate mobile and IPTV recommendations).

The design philosophy underpins everything we do as a user experience and design team. It informs the way our services look, the way they behave and the way we operate as a team.

The foundations should be used by all. They include a vertical grid, baseline grid and recommended templates.

The building blocks help create consistent interaction and visual design across the site; from typography to iconography.

Our design pattern library will offer a comprehensive set of re-usable page components.
