The Lily, The Washington Post’s publication for millennial women, was named a World’s Best-Designed finalist in the Society for News Design’s Best of Digital Design competition. The honor recognizes industry role models for their use of technology, their disciplined visual editing, and gorgeous visual presentations in digital news design.
In the finalist announcement, the judges write:
The range of The Lily’s stories and products is impressive. Every topic, story, experience and deep dive is carefully crafted for its audience and effectively presented. No matter where a reader encounters the content, it’s clear that there is a common creative and visual language that embodies the Lily’s aesthetic voice. It is a publication whose journalism is expressed through its design, creative edge, and playful (with discipline) approach to every aspect of its ecosystem.
The Lily’s team also earned several other awards from the Society for News Design’s digital competition, including a silver award for an overall portfolio of their work and a bronze medal for the design of “The Lily Lines” newsletter.
The Lily is one of six finalists. The winner will be announced in April at The Society’s annual workshop in Chicago.
