Design standards

The design standards help teams working in NSW Government to build user-centred services. They outline the best practice you need to consider - whether you’re creating a new service or improving an existing one.   

How to meet the standards 

There are six design standards. Follow each standard below to know the minimum practical tasks we’re expected to do, why they’re relevant and how to do them. 

Who uses the standards? 

The standards are for people who create – design, develop, build and support – digital services for government. Whatever your role, the standards can guide how you and your teams work day-to-day. 

They’re also for executives and teams to help them promote customer-focused ways of working.
