29 Well-Designed Online Style Guides

Companies and large projects will often develop a series of design rules in relation to branding, logos, icons, and mascots. These rules are referred to as style guides or alternatively branding guides. They’re used both internally for employees and externally for media kits.

Traditionally these style guides were created as books which would be shared around to anyone who needed them. Nowadays it’s just as popular to create a webpage dedicated to the company’s branding guidelines. The following illustrative examples demonstrate the most important facets of any online style guide.
