Style Guide Template
If you remember yesterday I talked about style guides and how they can be beneficial to any design project. That inspired me to create a general style guide template that would be useful for just about any project. I laid out color choices, typography, spacing and supporting elements that you would find in most projects. There are 5 pages in total, including the cover. You can preview my free style guide template below.
Since this style guide template is vector based, it’s easy to change colors and fonts to match your own projects. This is meant to be a general guide, but you can always add to it. You can add things such as the RGB and CMYK values for colors. You will also want to list the PMS values as well. A professional style guide can be as simple or as elaborate as you want to make it. I am including 2 versions in the download package. One is made with the latest version of Adobe Illustrator CC. The other version, which is labeled, is saved down to CS1. This should make it easy for everyone to use it.
You can download this free style guide template and use it in your personal or commercial projects. You can edit or modify it however you wish. However, you may not sell it or redistribute it anywhere else. If you want to share this template with others, please link back to this post. I would really appreciate you spreading the word, as it helps my site to grow.
