Sideways Dictionary

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Writing for Design / Writing for Digital Platforms / 2017

Sideways Dictionary is like a dictionary for technology, but using analogies instead of definitions. It’s a platform for finding, rating and sharing helpful analogies to explain the tech issues that increasingly shape our lives.

The concept was developed by Jigsaw in partnership with writer Nick Asbury, who wrote 300 analogies to populate the site, which is now open to public contributions. Sideways Dictionary has been embedded into the Washington Post site to explain tech terms in their coverage, and is available as a Chrome plug-in to work across the web.
