Bates Creative is honored to have had the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center’s U.S. Capitol Rotunda App awarded for the “Most Engaging Citizen-Facing Campaign” at the Adobe MAX 2015 Public Sector Reception in Los Angeles on October 5th. Adobe’s Public Sector awards recognize design-centric innovation that demonstrates smart strategy for connecting with citizens.

Government services have been merging into the mobile sphere by providing “consumerization” for users like never before. The U.S. Capitol Rotunda app designed by Bates Creative engages its audience on an interactive level to shape an experience that serves as the next best thing to touring the Rotunda in person while it’s closed for restoration.

Until the Rotunda reopens in 2017, the public can tour the Rotunda’s historic paintings, treasures, statuary and architecture in the app with sweeping 360-degree panoramic views, video libraries and beautiful photography.

To experience the splendor of the US Capitol Rotunda App, download it for our iPad and iPhone from the Apple App Store, available for free.
