Why Inspired Guides?

A style guide should present its content in visually appealing and engaging ways

We need more than guides to libraries of patterns if we’re to inspire designers as well as inform developers, so Inspired Guides help to demonstrate what’s possible in a design, not just document its parts. Inspired Guides carefully balance the needs of creative and technical people by making style guides better at communicating design concepts without getting in the way of the technical know-how people need.
