Best Visual Design

Judges want to see websites that make an impact and communicate a visual experience, where the design and images are high quality, with a full serving of great content.

Great visual design makes it clear where users go for certain types of information. Judges will expect to see design consistency throughout the website and across different devices.

The submitted website must have been created in the last 12 months.

Due to the number of entries we receive for this category, judges may decide to award a runner-up.



Entry Fee: £150.00 + VAT


Impact Does the website make an impact? How is it standing apart from the competition?
Navigation Does the visual design elevate or interfere with navigation? Is it clear where to go for certain types of information?
Consistency Is the design and style consistent throughout the website? Is it consistent across different devices? Does it flow?
Photography Given that architects' websites rely heavily on photographic imagery as a critical part of the user experience, the quality of photography will be judged.
