Design and UX
How to meet the government’s web and accessibility standards when planning, writing, designing and delivering digital products and services across a range of devices.
A design system is a catalogue of reusable components, patterns and base elements you might need to build your website or app.
Web accessibility is about inclusion — making sure everyone, including disabled people and those using assistive technologies, can access online information and services.
Usability is about designing effective, efficient and satisfying user experiences. All public service and non-public service agencies must meet the NZ Government Web Usability Standard.
A service design approach looks at the whole task, rather than the separate parts that might be spread throughout a government agency or across different agencies.
Use this guidance to help you design useful, readable, and inclusive content for your users.
