Design manual Use this manual to design and build digital services for Co-op. The manual is a starting point. It is meant to guide and inspire, not limit. If you want to try something that isn’t in the manual, then go for it. The manual exists so we can create familiarity across Co-op services. Familiarity makes things quicker and easier for our users — it helps them understand our services and trust us. Updates On 29 September 2017 we added guidance on writing about Co‑op.
