Judges' Com­ments

Idealog - - DESIGNERS INSTITUTE OF NEW ZEALAND -

This en­try places the spot­light squarely on a real, ur­gent prob­lem. The site’s pro­gres­sive-dis­clo­sure model works bril­liantly to guide the reader through, and the sim­plic­ity of layout works per­fectly to bring clar­ity to its text-heavy con­tent. Its sen­si­tiv­ity to ty­pog­ra­phy and a strong un­der­stand­ing of hi­er­ar­chy and con­tent flow all con­trib­uted to this be­ing the judges’ pick for the best in­ter­ac­tive work in 2017. It is in­spir­ing to see a brief taken to this level with a re­sult­ing out­come that is ap­proach­able, easy to con­sume, never over­whelm­ing, and user fo­cused above all else. Here’s to push­ing the lim­its of not only gov­ern­ment sites, but large-scale dig­i­tal projects full stop.
