Google

In 2017, R/GA was asked to do a complete overhaul of the Google Top Contributor Program. What we created was a system, that allowed users participating within the Google Product Forums to level up and become a certified Google Product Expert. The leveling system had to be clear and precise. The aesthetic had to feel premium, as these are some of Googles most knowledgeable and certified people to trust within the forums. The design also had to be flexible, as this program lived among many different sites and formats. Deliverables included logo, design system, badge designs, marketing site, and user profile.
