Best Website Design: The Opportunity Agenda by Outright
Outright’s website design for The Opportunity Agenda, an organization that prioritizes social justice communication and challenges dominant white supremacist narratives, allows for a platform that is both inspirational and informative.
The Opportunity Agenda’s website is primarily designed in an immersive dark-mode UI, an unusual choice for a website.
However, combined with carefully placed bursts of color through visuals and CTAs allows for a website that is both serious in message and interactive for its visitors.
Combined with its minimalist layout and bold, sans-serif typography, Outright’s work for The Opportunity Agenda immediately stands out for its unique approach to a social justice platform.

By sticking to a minimalist and symbolic logo design, Dragana Komljenovic ensures a feeling of luxury and elegance, representing the RCM Law Office’s premium expertise.
