Our approach to style guides

BLOG

Siso has been built on years of experience working on both the client and vendor sides. From this experience, we understand what is required to ensure a smooth project. We understand the importance of governance and the quality of deliverables. An example of how we differ is our approach to the sign-off process for designs and the associated documentation.

The usual approach of other vendors is to create a style guide which only details colours, fonts and images. But we produce style guides a little differently.

We don’t just detail what is used to construct the design, we also detail the how. This covers the way the design should be laid out with the relevant sizes, gaps and alignments. 

Producing a style guide this way ensures that the agreed design is implemented exactly. If a style guide doesn’t have this detail, the look of the final product is often down to how the developer has interpreted the design. The style guides also aid the testers as they can then test against quantifiable information and not interpretations.
