I get asked a lot about user interface (UI) and design elements for our sites. While we create styleguides for all our sites, these documents can be overwhelming, cumbersome, and not as easily distributable. As a result, I thought that putting together a Website with site guidelines would not only be more appropriate for the medium, but would also make it more widely accessible and usable.

UI-Patterns-Library.jpgWe've been working on it for a few months and are very excited to announce the launch of the VeriSign UI & Design Patterns Library. The site is a resource of Web Style Guidelines and Design Patterns for the VeriSign family of Web sites. It also covers social media UI & design guidelines for new media such as video, blogs, microblogs, social networks, podcasts, RSS, wikis, and forums. The Library provides resources from solutions for common UI problems to social bookmarking execution.

ui-sample.jpgThese guidelines are intended to avoid re-work and re-invention and allow for more standardization and efficiency. It's of value to user interface designers, graphic designers, and developers who are creating and working on our Web properties globally. External agencies we work with can leverage it to guide them in the design of our Web creatives. And, Web producers and project managers can use it as a quick reference guide.

ui-sample2.jpgThis site is currently for internal use only but we are working to make it externally available in the near future. This would enable access for external designers and design agencies engaged by VeriSign.

Where might I find this or other design style guides suitable for sharing with outside design consultants?

Thanks for a superb read, I dont really comment on blogs very much but though I might as well as your site is very good. Can I ask what theme is this you are using , is it paid one or a free one as I have been looking everywhere for a decent theme but most of them have horrid footer links.
