There are a number of different visual standards in use on ba.com, each described below. iVSG2 is the latest set of standards to be used in all responsive developments.

Contact Lee Head for all ba.com design queries.

Designs are built according to our design principles. DigitalDesignPrinciples_v2_2

By law, all designs must meet the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) to the compliance level of AA. Contact Allan Dade for further help with accessibility.

 

iVSG2

interactive Visual Styles and Guidelines v2

These styles were created for responsive ba.com.

The iVSG2 standards exist in a portal known as BAgel (British Airways global experience language), as the standards aim to cover all aspects of the customer experience.

BAgel site

 

Example iVSG2 pages:

Late deals

Boston guide

 

Pathfinder

The aim of this project is to make our content more engaging and impactful. It is closely linked to our iVSG2 styles but allows for conceptual ideas to be tested. Successful elements of Pathfinder will be introduced into the core iVSG2 standards.

Example Pathfinder page:

New York bars

FFS

Future flight selling

Only the old FFS flight list page continues to live on ba.com. Its design was never part of a site-wide design exercise and it is bespoke in its nature. Once SFD rolls out across all routes, FFS will cease to exist.
