Pocket Guides


The goal of the GovLoop’s Pocket Guides as a public-sector resource is to present trending IT topics that are important to the U.S. Government. The content brings in outside research and gives readers a quick resource to reference and learn from.

Pocket Guides' audience is the Washington, DC public sector; the inspiration for the design comes from people’s everyday places such as Federal agency building nameplates, and the Washington, DC Metro signage –designed in the mid-1970s by Massimo Vignelli. The layout uses the grid-based systems devised by Josef Müller-Brockmann.
