BBC Design Guidelines


Here’s an excel­lent find. A PDF file on BBC​.co​.uk named Visual Lan­guage 1.0 cov­er­ing the widen­ing of the site pages. Included are a lot of grid exam­ples which makes it a great read.

  • I am not a BBC bod. Can some­body please tell me whom I should con­tact about cur­rent BBC web site design (pro­gramme info, etc.). I am not happy with this at all, and have sev­eral suggestions.

    Why is it so hard to find infor­ma­tion on site con­tent and design?
