Title: Arresting Words

Comments: “This piece had more ‘meat’ to it. It’s a more complex story, for sure, but they weren’t afraid to let the words be the story. We aren’t cramming videos and photos or a background map. The words became the imagery. There were a lot of interesting design choices, and the use of white space let the typography stand out. It’s smart, navigable and the boldness serves several purposes.”
