We have a growing collection of templates at our disposal for use across different aspects of projects. As with our toolset, these templates aren’t set in stone, they are a great starting point for research methodologies, sample templates, design systems, and more. We will continue to update this section with more templates as they become more solidified in our practice.
🔒Discovery & Framing Method Cards - We’ve created a set of method cards that outline possible Discovery and Framing activities. Each method provides the what, why, and when to use as well as a detailed explanation of the process for running it.
🔒New project kickoff - This Miro board contains a growing number of activities that you can use during the kick off or inception of a new project.
🔒Usability recruitment email template - Sample usability recruitment emails provided by usability.gov. There are templates for recruitment as well as confirmation of both in person and remote sessions.
🔒Usability findings template - A sample usability finding template that outlines scope, synthesis, findings, and solutions exploration.
🔒Usability script template - A sample usability script template that outlines goals, flow, introductions, session setup, tasks, and follow up.
USWDS templates/docs - USWDS is our first stop in choosing components, typography, color palettes, and layouts for federal technology projects. The design system is built and maintained by GSA and is usually a requirement for many of our government contracts.
Documentation - This USWDS site provides resources and documentation for each part of the design system. We also have a dedicated Slack channel #uswds-design-system for questions or comments on working with the system on Truss projects.
Sketch and Adobe XD libraries - GSA officially maintains template libraries for Sketch and Adobe XD which can be found on their documentation site.
