Design Gate

It is important apps be easy to view and represent a level of quality that reflects well on the University of Virginia. Proper use of logos, for instance, approved colors and imagery, as well as clear and grammatically correct text all contribute to the user experience. Consistent use of brand elements is important. 

To help protect this level of quality in design, before leaving the requirements and design phase and proceeding to development, app projects must pass the design gate.

For UVA Health System projects, the Medical Center Marketing department (Director Chris Sullivan or his designee) will review for design and branding. For UVA Academic projects, the UVA Communications office (Chief Dave Martel or his designee) will review for design and branding.
