Best User Experience
Outstanding user experience is about creating websites that makes the user’s journey smooth, intuitive and enjoyable. Judges are looking for websites that clearly understand the audience and where the architect’s services are displayed in a way that is appealing to their target audience.
They want to see websites that load quickly with elegant, efficient and consistent navigation so users can find relevant content quickly and easily. The website should work equally well on any device – desktop, laptop, smartphone, or tablet.
This category is particularly relevant for websites that have had additions and improvements from autumn 2022 to February ’24.
