Hello! X-GOVUK is an unofficial community-maintained space for people working on government digital services in the UK.
The “X” stands for “cross”, as in “cross-government”.
Collaboration across department and organisational boundaries within government is often very tricky, for all sorts of practical and cultural reasons.
But it can also be incredibly rewarding and save a lot of time, by sharing designs, code, and research findings.
The “X” also stands for “experimental”, as this can be a space for ideas that aren’t yet proven.
- a template for writing design histories
- a crowdsourced list of UK government digital services
- an extension for the GOV.UK Prototype Kit to enable forking questions based on radios
- a wizard tool for building and iterating ‘one thing per page’ user journeys in prototypes
The X-GOVUK homepage also contains a list of useful design, content, prototyping and front-end resources from across government.
