Awwwards recognize the talent and the effort of the best web designers, developers, and agencies in the world. They describe themselves as a 'meeting point,' where digital design professionals from across the globe find inspiration, impart knowledge and experience, connect, and share constructive, respectful critiques. Each year, a special website is created to celebrate the best of the best in the world of web design. We were chosen to design the voting platform in collaboration with Awwwards and Webflow for this year's Annual Awards – and what an honor!
Imagine yourself lying in the grass, dreaming yourself away. You look up into a pink sky, indicating that something better is on its way – maybe even an Awwwards nomination. The visual concept is a celebration of the Awwwards community. It’s a celebration of dreaming big – together.
To be one selected as the best of the web 2021 is a big achievement. Once you’re nominated or your work is selected for a prize, you’re on cloud nine – a state of extreme happiness and euphoria, where everything is light, bright, and pleasant. The website design is built upon layers of skies and a 3D visualization of the Awwward statuette. Together they create an experience of depth at the site and add a floating and light feeling.
It was important for us to create a great balance between a special interactive web experience and a well-working performance. The platform is kept simple and clean in its design, making sure that the voting experience is still intuitive and user-friendly.
