The Notice & Comment (N&C) website was redesigned for clarity purposes. The idea was to provide users with streamlined information, focusing on what mattered most. We started first by making the search box the top priority, as the main function of the site is to search for regulatory content to view, comment, and or share.
By focusing the attention of the user on the search function, we were able to funnel them down to exactly what they needed to do first: search. From there we sought to clarify every inch of the site with function in mind. Searching and reading through government regulation can be a daunting task, but with the aid of relaxed colors, consistent icons, and typography, anything’s possible.
