Get your teams talking. NewsKit establishes a common language between designer and engineer, so everyone’s on the same page.


Our principles shape everything we do at NewsKit.

We design for people

Everything revolves around our customers. Everything we do should make their lives a little easier - and sometimes a lot.

We’re inclusive first

Every design decision has the potential to include or exclude. We aim to make everything - from words to images to fonts - simple, clear and accessible for everyone.

We’re open (and open source)

We share everything. We love feedback and contributions. And we look for great ideas everywhere.
