Government Information Services  is creating New Zealand’s all-of-government (AOG) Design System now. Our overall aim is to improve digital service delivery across the New Zealand public service.

Since the AOG Design System will be available for everyone in central and local government — and beyond — to use, we want a strong cross-government community backing it.

You can contribute by:

  • testing our components and patterns
  • helping to develop new components and patterns
  • commenting on our guidance.

This alpha website shows you what we have built so far, what we're working on, and how you can get involved. Read about the benefits of using the AOG Design System, and how we are building it, on the homepage.

Keep updated

The input and feedback we received from the initial user research, meetups, workshop, and user testing has been invaluable in shaping the alpha Design System.

To keep updated with what we are doing now, what we are planning to do next, and how you can get involved, subscribe to the AOG Design System newsletter.
