Pocket Guides

  • The goal of the GovLoop’s Pocket Guides as a public-sector resource is to present trending IT topics that are important to the U.S. Government. The content brings in outside research and gives readers a quick resource to reference and learn from.

    There is a strong cultural background in the design: due the audience is the Washington, DC public sector, the inspiration comes from their local everyday places such as the Federal agencies buildings nameplates, and the Washington, DC Metro signage–designed in the mid-1970s by Massimo Vignelli. The layout also uses the grid-based systems lessons by Josef Müller-Brockmann.
