How do we evaluate entries in the “Best of Digital Design” competition? This graphic explains the process.
Judges award a gold medal to the Harvard Law Review for its redesign. “If other sites treated the reading experience the way that they do, reading experiences would be that much better…. It totally respects the medium and what it is.”
The Berliner Morgenpost has won a silver medal for “Die Narbe der Stadt” “A lot of what I miss in a lot of what we see is the human touch. This has it and puts it in the realm of something I care about.”
The Washington Post has won a silver medal for “What Happened to Flight 370?” “Among the collections of coverage, I thought that they got really creative using different kinds of visuals.”
NPR has won a silver medal for “Election Party!” “It’s super creative and inventive in that they thought about what their users are going to be doing during this day, and how they can be a part of that.”
The New York Times has won silver for “Is That a Luge in Times Square?“ “They differentiate themselves. Four Olympics ago, everybody did sort of drawing graphics. Now, the Times does something that’s different from what other people did.”
The New York Times has won a silver medal for “Brazilians Erupt After Their First World Cup Goal.” “The challenge in the newsroom is to deliver on the big stories, and they do, continuously.”
The New York Times has won a silver medal for “Houses in the Path of the Washington Mudslide.”
“You see it, you understand the story. You leave with everything.”

National Geographic has won a silver medal in the Features Coverage category with its piece, “Outer Space’s Big Questions.” “It’s a completely visual experience. The attention to deal pushes you.”
