U.S. Web Design Standards

The U.S. Web Design Standards is an ambitious project to provide government agencies with ready-to-use design and interaction patterns–along with all of the code that implements them–that offer consistent and enjoyable user experiences out of the box. I joined the project about a year after its public launch to help prepare a (mostly symbolic) 1.0 release, refactor the development and release processes, and improve documentation and testing tools.
