A Rare Look At The Graphic Design Guidelines At Google



A senior designer at Google, Roger Oddone, has given us a rare glimpse of the graphic design guidelines in place at Google by publishing two insightful documents online.

Named the “Visual Assets Guidelines”, they document a range of design-related principles that are practiced at the internet giant and focus on iconography.

The aim of publishing these guidelines is to reveal the “solid, yet flexible, set of guidelines that have been helping Google’s designers and vendors to produce high-quality work that helps strengthen Google’s identity”.

From the general ideas about how icons should look like to the smaller, grittier details of how to produce an attractive and consistent visual identity, these documents should be of interest to most people working in the graphic design industry.

Get a sneak peek of what you can expect to find in them below.
