ACU Digital Standards
ACU Digital Standards is a systemisation of the ACU design for ACU's digital touch-points or websites. These standards are important for the following reasons.
- To align digital (web) standards with the ACU brand
- To provide a library of ready to utilise, user interface (UI) modules.
- To improve efficiencies in application development and maintenance, including work by third party contractors
- To support a consistent user experience of the ACU brand throughout its digital touchpoints
- To establish shared processes and governance so as to improve digital design practices across the University.
These standards should be of use to the following roles:
- Interface designers
- Digital producers and editors
- Digital project managers, business and systems analysts, and Agile scrum masters (etc)
- Content writers
- Owners, managers and coordinators of ACU digital applications (or web systems).
We have divided this site into the following sections:
- Design principles (and guides) - to help guide our work
- Foundations - the base elements or atoms used on our designs
- Components - user interface components or organisms
- Page templates - see how all these elements are brought together.
This site is in beta. Best to use on desktop sized screens. Please send feedback to Paul Hudson.
If you are planning a reskin of an ACU interface (system or website) please contact Digital Operations via Paul Hudson for further consultation in first instance. You should seek MER approval in any digital interface design involving ACU branding and Digital Operations will guide you through this process.
