Design Manager in SharePoint 2013 provides a new approach for designing websites. Several new branding and design-based capabilities available in Design Manager enable you to create a compelling look, feel, and behavior for your SharePoint 2013 site. Design Manager also supports importing and exporting a visual design, and can help you ensure a consistent visual experience across all device platforms in your organization.

See these articles for more information about the design and support capabilities included in Design Manager:

  • Design packages: Learn how to build and export the visual design of a SharePoint 2013 site collection as a package.

Learn how to create a device channel, change a device channel, delete a device channel, and reorder device channels in SharePoint 2013.
