Winning Project: Washington State Department of Enterprise Services (DES)
Our winning project focused on the Phase 1 redesign of the DES website (des.wa.gov). We collaborated with DES to improve usability, achieve business objectives, modernize the look and feel, and align with evolving customer needs. Using the Human-Centered Design approach, our team of experts in UX research, design, content strategy, and accessibility ensured that the new website would be both useful and user-friendly.
The result is a mobile-friendly, accessible website with a revamped information architecture that prominently showcases DES products and services. Clear calls-to-action guide customers on how to engage with DES, while a visual rebranding creates a cohesive identity that highlights the agency's diverse offerings.
The launch of Phase 1 received rave reviews for its simplicity and user-friendliness. Customers now find it even easier to discover and understand DES services thanks to reduced content and intuitive design. Their improved self-service options also empower customers by saving time and effort, while fostering trust and satisfaction.
Making impactful change
Through our online transformation, we've made DES more accessible and customer-friendly, empowering citizens to access government services effortlessly. We're proud to be part of such meaningful projects, and we thank the w3 Awards for recognizing this important work. Our gratitude goes out to the DES team and all the customers who played a role in the design process. Together, we're driving significant change.
