Digital pattern library
The digital pattern library is a developers' resource to ensure a consistent look and feel for all digital products at the University of St Andrews.
It acts as a central repository for the source code of each pattern used on the University website and web applications, and also documents coding standards, colours, and other development criteria for digital products.
The digital pattern library is an evolving set of design patterns underpinning a new digital approach for the University, built through collaboration, and tested with real people who use our products.
The pattern library has three main audiences:
1. General users
2. Web developers
3. Digital communications team
The digital communications team develops and designs the pattern library and uses it to build digital assets. The team needs a central place to work, test, and document the design patterns.
