Getting started

Building NSW Government services with the Design System.

Our Design System helps build better distinctly NSW digital experiences for citizens.

The Design System makes it easy for individuals and teams to re-skin, improve, or start a product or service from scratch. There are a few ways to get started with the styles, patterns, and solutions that will make your product, service, or website distinctly NSW.

More than just UI

The NSW Government Design System gives those who are building products and services a common library of UI building blocks. All of the patterns, components, and templates meet the Design Standards for user needs and accessibility.

Each pattern contains information, based on evidence, to help guide when it should be used and how it meets user needs. The patterns are available as code, and in Figma for wireframing, prototyping and final design.


  • Distinctly NSW Figma UI kit - build and test prototypes using Design System UI components, receive updates, share your files, and collaborate in real-time with your team and stakeholders.
