NSW Design System patterns

Minimum you need to do

Use the NSW Design System patterns to design your website, product or service.

The NSW Design System has a range of common design patterns to help you build your website or service. 

The patterns apply the digital design styles. They provide a consistent user experience that is:

  • responsive
  • accessible to WCAG 2.1 AA standard
  • distinctly NSW out of the box.

You can find the pattern design assets in the NSW Design System Sketch UI kit.  

Everyone working for NSW Government can use these patterns, including brand exempt NSW Government agencies. Using the patterns will save time and costs. 

You can use the patterns as they are to achieve a distinctly NSW Government product. If you have brand exemption you can easily customise the highlight colour, which automatically updates all relevant patterns. 

How to show you’ve used design system patterns

  • You will have created a prototype with the UI patterns and tested it with users.

  • Your developers have implemented your final product using the code provided through the design system.
