Future Media Standards & Guidelines

Global Visual Language v2.0

1. Introduction

All BBC Online (bbc.co.uk) web pages MUST adhere to the Global Visual Language Guidelines v2.0 (this is a zip file, approximately 5MB in size).

The document is aimed at producers and designers who need to know how to design BBC Online web pages, detailing the design grid and page layout guidelines to be used across the site.

NB. A full new technical architecture solution for the site is currently still in development. You are currently able to download the design assets Restricted access - Post-NDA only in Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop formats.

For further information on how to code sites for designs based on this visual language, please contact the Editor, Standards & Guidelines.

NB. For comparison purposes, here are the old (Barley) Page Layout Standards.
