This guidance currently resides on the DTA’s corporate website alongside other guidance pertaining to mandatory requirements for Australian Government websites.
The existing header component makes reference to the Commonwealth Coat of Arms (with a supplied example using the Australian Government Design (inline)), but no further guidance is provided or linked to regarding the specific implementation of the design.
The Design System and DTA corporate website teams are currently considering how best to include references to the implementation of the Australian Government Design (“the Design”) and the Agency Design in the Design System. Current options under consideration include:
- Link directly to the existing website branding advice on the DTA corporate website, with additional links to the PM&C branding advice.
- Include implementation advice in an existing component (for example,
- Create a new Design System component .
- Create a dedicated guidance page (not a ‘component’) on designsystem.gov.au
- Do nothing.
- Do something else (suggestions welcome below).
This proposal does not include any significant modifications to the guidance as published, save for minor updates to the resolution of the supplied PSD files and updating references.
- The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet maintains the policy: Australian Government Branding - Guidelines on the use of the Australian Government logo by Australian government departments and agencies.
- The Digital Transformation Agency maintains the guidance for the implementation of the Design on websites. This guidance was previously maintained by AGIMO within the Department of Finance.
