The Websites of the Year contest encourages creators to polish their skills by mastering Readymag’s ever-expanding creative arsenal, create functional projects for clients and bring impactful passion projects to the world. It also introduces the broad public to new web design gems and the limitless possibilities of Readymag, an in-browser design tool for creating outstanding digital publications.
The visual approach to the contest website was mostly determined by the details of our application page. It included terms, rules, a timeline; as well as voting criteria, with geometric shapes appearing on the contest page to dilute text volume.
As for the choice of typeface, we opted for Px Grotesk—which we’ve used in our own Readymag projects for the last two years or so. Since the typeface is a recognizable part of our visual style, we decided to use glyphs from this font and set them to enhance the effect of familiarity and clearness.
