UI Style Guides

Our UI style guides explain, demonstrate and help your analysts and developers get the most out of interactive and data-driven web applications — without sacrificing the visual appeal. We see organisations invest in data visualization technology but forget the crucial aspects of visual communication — the design, the style, and user experience. As part of our style guide we’ll develop your visual reporting language and style, so everyone viewing your reports understands your information quickly and with an overall visual style that is repeatable through the whole organisation.

What’s Included in Our UI Style Guides?

Designing with Highcharts & D3

Multiple pages linking the latest in design research with methods of applying it to your design.

Charts & Graphs

Each chart is presented with a design best practice example and content to understand and use them effectively.

Templates

Alongside your style guide, you will be given templates and frameworks to get you moving immediately in the right direction.

Styling

On brand design rules your company can follow to ensure unified designs. Think typography and color.

Instructions

Step by step instructions to limit technical challenges and allow your team to focus more on the design.

Extra

The list goes on. Request extras with your UI style guide such as icon sets, design examples, and source files to name a few.

Other Offerings That Go Well With UI Style Guides

Data Visualization Workshop

Datalabs Agency provide a variety of data visualisation training workshops. This is recommended as a perfect accompaniment to your style guide as you’ll learn best practice design through personalised theory and guided exercises. We run a large variety of workshops tailored to specific industries and software. Talk to us about how you can package the workshop up with your style guide.

Data Viz Online Learning

Learn the basics in data visualization and storytelling in your own leisure with an online course. This course runs through, step by step, our process which has been tried and tested to produce quality designs which meet your purpose. We recommend taking the eLearning course to warm-up to the theory and practical elements in data viz and then applying it to your work whilst referencing your style guide. The two go hand-in-hand.

Let us take the first design using your style guide to show just what your brand is capable of. Maybe you have a challenge that you would like some expert assistance with. By utilising the Datalabs Agency’s experienced team, we’ll take you through our process whilst working through your challenges. This will leave you with a benchmark design to reference and take into future projects with your style guide on hand.
