Delaware is in the process of beginning a new delaware.gov redesign and is asking for the public’s input in the form of a short survey.

From the delaware.gov blog:

We’re reviewing other states’ web sites. We’re looking at private sector web sites. We’re looking at federal, county and municipal web sites. We’re drawing on our years of experience managing the existing delaware.gov and answering your questions. We’re reviewing data on what people have searched for on the state’s phone directory search tool.

Whether you live in Delaware or not, it’s a great opportunity to influence the design and development strategy of one state’s website. That doesn’t happen too often.

Complete the survey.

Colorado gets a logo

ColoradoColorado recently went through a design and brand identity process that culminated in a new logo and tagline.

The tagline, “It’s our nature,” says Colorado, symbolizes the state’s “awe-inspiring scenery and life-loving people. It connects adventure with entrepreneurship, beauty with happiness and fresh air with creativity.”

As with any final product design, there’s some drama about the new look, but I like it. I’d love to see more governments incorporate a public design process like this.
