Evergreen reinforces trust and familiarity with users by applying an identifying banner or “theme”. This means that Evergreen’s color palette and typography should be incorporated into third-party applications and services. Exceptions to these design principles can be made when technical requirements prohibit such changes. Contact us for assistance with third-party application design themes or attributes.
Our Core Principles
- Iterative: constant progress
- Simplified: work towards single sources of data, link and don't copy
- User-focused: consider the target audience of every page and section
- Data-driven: test, analyze, tweak, test, analyze, tweak
We use these principles to provide easy, intuitive access to information from any device.
