Examples of Beautiful and Attractive Government Websites

Government refers to the particular group of people, the administrative bureaucracy, who control a nation/state at a given time, and the manner in which their governing organizations are structured. That is, governments are the means through which state power is employed. States are served by a continuous succession of different governments. The governments are probably one of the earliest organization that made its mark on the Internet. However they are also among the organizations that have less presentable websites.

In this article, I will do a round up of attractive government websites of different sectors from different countries that not only beautifully design but also have accommodating user interface to provide users a better experience.  They come from various different countries, political parties, and purposes. If you are planning to build a government website you may find WordPress themes in various categories interesting, such as themes for educational websites or for non-profit websites. In many cases simple themes are also good as starting point for most types of websites.

I don’t think the website for Supreme Court of the Philippines is “beautiful and attractive”. It’s just not.

I mean, it may have been 10-15 years ago. But based on current standards on what’s aesthetically attractive, like Web 2.0 design concepts, that does not conform. Beauty is relative to the beholder, but that website should not be counted as a good example.

Why do you stretch the images in these posts? It really detracts from the ‘great design’ you’re trying to portray. It looks terrible! Just show the sites in their normal resolution!
