Massachusetts Web Design Guidelines support and reflect the important guidance codified in the 21st Century Integrated Digital Experience Act. These design principles are intended to help teams across government align on important common goals and use the guidelines to be an evaluative lens for design and implementation decisions. Regardless of how it’s built, any Commonwealth web project should support these principles.
The purpose of these guidelines is to:
Uphold a high standard of quality and consistency for constituents’ experience interacting with the Commonwealth over the internet
Build trust between constituents and the websites that provide government services
Protect constituents from private websites masquerading as government websites for nefarious purposes
