Design Guidelines

The Lightning Design System reflects the patterns and components that underpin the Salesforce product. These patterns and components provide a unified language and consistent look and feel when designing apps and products within the Salesforce ecosystem.

Design Principles

We constantly keep these core principles in mind when making design decisions at Salesforce, and we encourage you to adopt them as well.

  • Clarity

    Eliminate ambiguity. Enable people to see, understand, and act with confidence.
  • Efficiency

    Streamline and optimize workflows. Intelligently anticipate needs to help people work better, smarter, and faster.
  • Consistency

    Create familiarity and strengthen intuition by applying the same solution to the same problem.
  • Beauty

    Demonstrate respect for people’s time and attention through thoughtful and elegant craftsmanship.
