We’re happy to announce that the AIGA has awarded the Cities of Service Online Network in its annual 365 | Design Effectiveness Competition. It’s on display at the AIGA National Design Center, 164 Fifth Avenue, NY, from Sept 15 – Nov 23. The project is also part of the AIGA Design Archives.
Jurors’ comments about the project:
Would not have stood out if not for the platform, what it challenges and how it supports communities. Did a good job of combining a cohesive system with universal usability. Customizations give each city a personality without being overwhelming.
Plug and play—great use of usability, scalability and customization. Allows for personalization in a simple way.
Very practical information, well illustrated and not preachy.
I’m glad that the jurors were able to see past the surface when evaluating this project. The strength of this project is the entire system and how this system can work effectively for volunteers, organizations, and city administrators. How easily and meaningfully we connected these people was the main challenge in this project. Aesthetics was a consideration in this project…one topic amongst many others.
A big thank you to the jurors and the AIGA!
