Create an Intranet Style Guide

Development of a corporate intranet is normally decentralized across individual departments, each creating its own site and applications. How can a company keep a consistent user experience across these various sites?

This is accomplished by publishing a style guide. While the publishing guide suggests what should be on the intranet, the style guide suggests how it should look. The style guide should suggest or enforce (depending on your corporate culture) standards on the following:

  • Font size, color and style
  • Default screen size
  • Color use for backgrounds and other graphics
  • Suggested file size for HTML files and graphic files
  • Navigation requirements
  • Authoring standards such as headers, footers and comments
  • Logo standards
  • I would suggest creating a Web site on the intranet that promotes these standards. Create a place where publishers can download templates and see examples.
