2017 WEBBY AWARD WINNER FOR BEST TRAVEL SITE. We provided the creative direction, creative strategy, and website design for nycgo.com, setting the new standard for travel websites. The new design is responsive, and integrates content, ecommerce, and advertising throughout the entire 9,000+ page site. NYCgo is mobile-first and video-first, featuring over 100 video backgrounds of New York City neighborhoods and events. The design uses custom webfonts alongside bespoke illustrations and icons. The website won the Webby Award for Best Travel Website (besting Lonely Planet and Condé Nast Traveller), and has been featured in 45+ press outlets such as Forbes, including being named one of The 25 Best Tourism Websites in the World in 2016 by Skift, and Top 10 Sites for Designers by HOW Design.
