I have been working with a few companies now on designing services, and particularly assisting them with the transfer from brand strategy to service experience. All of the companies I know of, have reasonable but traditional brand strategy documents (text and ppt) and traditional design handbooks (text, images, logos, fonts).
I've been tasked with creating a new UI standard for my company. I
thought it would be a great project for me, one that would allow me
to exercise my usability skills and give me the means to convince
people about the virtues of user-centered design (something lacking
here). But, nine months later, I'm wondering if I'm going to be
fired when the new standard is applied to an application, and
everything falls apart. I knew this wouldn't be easy, but I didn't
know it would be this hard.
My UX team is currently looking for a good solution to manage our
styleguide, which is our specs and models maintain for the development team.
Right now it's straight up HTML pages which has become quite cumbersome. I
was thinking of implementing a wiki CMS to better organize and manage our
Styleguide. Anyone have any experience with this?
What do you use to manage your styleguide and resources? Is there any
particular software or service you would recommend?
