Virginia Decoded Launches

The Virginia Decoded site launched this week, as the first part of Waldo Jaquith’s State Decoded project. I did the design work and will be helping out with future design/css work.

The project is to create a human-readable and easily accessible version of the Virginia State Code. Waldo’s fought against horrible SGML and other nightmares to get this up and running, and it’s pretty damn awesome.

Richmond Sunlight Redesign Launches

I designed a mockup for Waldo earlier in 2008 and today it launches on Richmond Sunlight. Erik Kastner did the HTML/CSS sexiness for it.

For those of you not familiar with the Sunlight projects, they are sites dedicated to increased transparency in the legislative process. This particular site focuses on the Virginia General Assembly. For more information you can read about the Sunlight Foundataion.
