For the Corporate Identity / Brand, there is usually a manual. It is a great deliverable for the client and for me as a student, it is a great way to learn about webdesign.

While there are many websites which host or link corporate identity manuals, I could not find any "webdesign manuals". Is this even a thing?

Does a webdesigner usually create some sort of a document for future use? Or is this more the responsibility of the identity designer?

Would a designer put the ruleset (hierarchie, colors, navigation) of the website into an identity manual?

For some major corporations, I saw just a hint of how the corporate design would affect the webdesign. But usually, they link to a restricted page, so I can not see it.

Do you have resources of "webdesign breakdowns" or guides?

    These are generally called "style guides" for things like web sites. And, seeing as they are for the web, they are often set up as a stand alone web page.

    As for this question, it has a lot of questions within it and isn't really focused enough for StackExchange. Commented Apr 12, 2021 at 12:40
  • Which platform would you recommend, if not StackExchange? I thought "Graphic Design Stack Exchange" would be a good fit since it has to do with graphic design? Commented Apr 13, 2021 at 7:33

    If you were asking one question about this topic it'd be fine. As it is, you're asking many. Commented Apr 13, 2021 at 12:53
