Darwin: Who Wants To Live a Million Years?

Judges’ comments:

This is a well-designed presentation. Information is easily digested in small sections and through various formats. Nicely done. Fun and informative. What more could you ask for? The jibber-jabberin’ Darwin was a nice touch for something that could be potentially dry and possibly a little boring. Good thinking.

Dress Up For Oscar

Judges’ comments:

Fun site. Reader involvement. A way to understand what is behind the preparation for glamorous events. Navigation is linear the first time through to encourage the reader to experience the order however, a next button will allow a fast forward through the specific sections.

Behind the Booms: The When, Where and How of Fireworks

Judges’ comments:

This is a great and simple way to explain something that is complex to explain statically visually. Simulations are good if they are well-designed.

Mapping Memory

Judges’ comments:

Excellent, information-rich animation of the memory functions of the brain. The interface is smooth, well-designed and mostly user-friendly. Much of the information could seem dense or intimidating to non-scientific users; the use of examples and other types of media might’ve made it more accessible to the average user.

Wow.

Finding the Way Home

Judges’ comments:

Helluva fine job! My only criticism is that there was way too much on that page, almost to the point it was overwhelming. I was presented with menus and widget options and tons of thumbnails unrelated to the package and links to buy stuff and multiple ways to share it with my friends and even more ways to buy stuff and tons of links and tags and comments… Poor little Tatum was almost buried under all that clutter. I’m afraid that all that stuff might be overwhelming to some. But even amidst all that, lives a fantastic story. Again, well done!

Los riesgos de la velocidad en las calles

Judges’ comments:

Overall, this is a very clean infographic with appropriate usage of sound bytes and animation. The news value is high and this is a perfect example of when visualization and graphics help tell a story.

70 Years of Superman

Judges’ comments:

This package utilizes various multimedia features and is interactive, giving the reader the opportunity to decide what to read, watch and hear. The design carries the comics theme throughout and is effective. Well done!

2007 Year in Pictures

Judges’ comments:

The navigation on the bottom is brilliant, allowing people to sneak a peek and skip ahead. The editing of the voiceover and the soundtrack work very well together. I like the pace and rhythm of this feature. The use of audio (I assume from TV or radio reports) is good and well-selected especially in the news sections.
