Multimedia/Digital designer of the year

No designers were awarded in this category.

Judges overall thoughts:

They were impressed with the magazine apps, the quality of videos and some of the overall news site designs. It seems like designs and information in digital projects don’t have a complete marriage and need to work together from the start. In some interactives, there’s the data, but not so much storytelling. The projects need more narrative structure instead of just focus in on data and web development.

And with that, our 2013 contest has come to a close! Thanks to everyone who entered. You all did some fantastic work and we look forward to next year’s competition!

Judges based their decision on the navigation of apps. Some had confusing navigation and a lack of cues to tell the reader what to do. They appreciated clean designs that were interactive throughout and integrated multimedia.
