Anna Debenham – Front-end Style Guides from Fronteers on Vimeo.
Anna presents the various kinds of style guides and style guide frameworks available and shows some real life examples of actual company style guides and how those adapt to different environments and requirements. She also outlines how to make use of style guides as living documentation that has a shelf-life longer than the original project realization phase.
