Future Media Standards & Guidelines

Global Visual Language Guidelines

The Global Visual Language (GVL) guidelines have changed! For all the latest recommendations and guidance see GVL 3.0.

GVL 2.0 is also still available for those building sites in accordance with the old guidelines. It should be noted that GVL 2.0 has now been superseded and replaced by GVL 3.0. Some projects that have been started using GVL 2.0 are yet to deliver and these guidelines will remain available until such time as they are no longer required.
