Web Style Guide

Purpose:


Normandale Community College’s web style guide exists to ensure consistency and usability in web content presentation and to promote the college branding across all college websites.

Consistency:

This guide promotes consistency. Consistency simplifies navigation of pages for end users of Normandale's web pages. The biggest effect for users with website consistency is increased usability. Normandale is committed to maintaining a high level of consistency across web pages in different areas of the college website.

Scope:


Any external-facing web page that can be found through the college website and is representative of the programs, official units, departments or the college is expected to follow this web style guide.
