Welcome to the CFPB Design Manual
The CFPB strives to better serve consumers by using plain language; relying on simple, user-friendly design; and providing easy access to information that can help consumers make informed decisions.
This Design Manual is an open-source resource for CFPB staff to produce effective and visually-consistent products that are easy for consumers to access, use, and understand. The Manual includes our design principles, guidelines for user experience, visual identity standards, and code snippets for common user interface elements. The Manual will continue to evolve as we learn what works best for the CFPB and the people we serve.
