Last week Statesman.com won the 2007 Digital Edge Award for Best Design and Site Architecture from the Newspaper Association of America. The Statesman.com was also a finalist in the Most Innovative Multimedia Storytelling category.
Each year the ‘Edgies‘, founded in 1996, recognize online publishers from newspapers of all sizes that engage online audiences with Web-enhanced news coverage and effectively deliver advertisers’ interactive marketing messages. NAA is a nonprofit organization representing the $59 billion newspaper industry and more than 2,000 newspapers in the U.S. and Canada. Most NAA members are daily newspapers, accounting for 87 percent of the U.S. daily circulation.
Those are some impressive stats.
While I am extremely honored to be one of the key individuals who work every day to make this website one of the best out there, much of the honor goes to my former co-worker, whose previous position I now hold, Leesa. She tirelessly worked to ensure that the site was the latest and greatest in terms of CSS and table-less design while living up to the actual design elements. No easy task, I assure you.
