In the latest edition of the BBC Sport Digital Design Guide, we look at the differences between the digital and print versions of the sportswear world.
The Digital Design guide covers the different components of the world of sportswearing, from the design of the website to the design and delivery of the product.
Here we look across the different editions of the guide to see which features are the most important and which are the less important.
Design principles to be used in the digital version of the Guide What are the main design principles used by the designers of the new guide?
Design principles for the digital edition of The Digital Guide.
What are these design principles?
Design is a process of creating visual elements.
For example, a print designer might use a colour palette or design language to create a visually compelling product.
They may also employ graphic design techniques to create an appealing image.
In the digital guide, the key design principles are: a) The use of the word ‘digital’, as it stands in the guide.
b) The inclusion of the words ‘digital design’ and ‘digital print’ in the title.
How can you apply design principles to the digital design guide?
The new digital design approach is based on three main principles: 1) The introduction of a digital design language and toolkit.
2) The incorporation of design elements and design language in the design elements.
3) The application of digital design principles in the delivery of product elements.
To apply digital design to a specific product, a digital designer will need to first use the digital language and tools, then add design elements to the product, and then implement these elements.
This will help them to produce a product that is responsive to the consumer.
The digital design process is an iterative process.
Design elements may be introduced as the user interacts with the product or as they are added and removed.
The digital edition will be available from September 2018.
This guide is available to buy in the UK and Ireland at the BBC Store.
