Design Vision and Principles


The following style elements provide a palette to express your own unique vision while also being part of a shared community vision.

  • Use colors consistently. (Merge into existing [color] guidelines)
  • Ensure backgrounds and edges honor the design vision.
  • Icon use should be consistent throughout the interface. (Merge into existing [icon design] guidelines)
  • Layout visual elements to reduce clutter and ensure balance.
  • Treat typography with the same care as any other aspect of the visual design.

Building blocks

  • Building blocks help make it easier to design applications that satisfy the design vision without needing to always create your own custom UI elements.
