SND Digital: Marshall Project, Quartz judged World’s Best – The Society for News Design – SND
Here are the signals for all media:
Meeting the audience where it’s gathered: This is crucial as devices and platforms proliferate. As storytellers, publishers must be open to the idea of any platform where readers and viewers see their work, while understanding deeply how to tailor content to needs and play to strengths.
Engaging members of a community of interest: Publisher are in peril if they don’t understand what drives people — and that can be everything from personal passions to a brand’s voice and authority. Knowing who you are engaging is imperative.
Having a clear — often narrow — focus: Work that understands why it exists and what audience it’s aiming to serve wins. Extraordinary discipline is often required to achieve a clarity of focus, whether that a single-purpose app or the reason behind a long-form project or the entire mission of a publication.
Creating gorgeous, useful experiences: Consistency of voice and design across platforms is important and rare — and, yet, there also should be moments of surprise and serendipity. Having rich content always work. Having it resonate and work seamlessly is even better.
Respecting users by solving problems: Whether it’s how fast a page loads or the way a story reveals itself across devices, publishers have more control than ever in delivering on technology and UX so it’s a responsibility to engage in smart ways. Hierarchy never goes out of style.
Being ambitious and audacious: New technology — things like virtual reality and natural language speech — must be a consideration for publishers, which necessitates experimentation. Beautiful new ways of experiencing the world are in full flourish and are capturing attention. What else is? The idea of editing and delivery paired to save time. Some ambitions are in technology, some are in imagination, some are in editing. The best work toward all.
Acting like a trusted source, not merely a publisher: Focus on the interests of an audience, and be a source of information for people in that audience, even if that news is from elsewhere. Newsletters that don’t merely promote content, they get you caught up, and give you more to read if you’re interested (skim and dive), and importantly, they link to other people’s great work. Authority is expressed by reporting and writing — but also curating, selecting stuff that they think their audience will think is important.
Indicating what’s worth it — news that’s the most important can be finished: All the news that’s fit to read. (To link?) None of these ideas are particularly new – newsletters are pretty old-school. And links out are the building blocks of the web. But newsrooms have rarely done these things well, and these places are smart to do so. These are solid, audience-first choices.
