Download.com wins a Webby

I'm proud to announce that Download.com received the People's Voice award today in the "IT Hardware/Software" Webby category.

As a user-centered designer, what makes me most proud is the fact that the Webbys are judged on: content, structure and navigation, visual design, functionality, interactivity, and overall experience — most of which I had a lot of influence over during last year's redesign of the site.

It's too bad that a lot of the look and feel I created for the redesign has been supplanted by CNET's recent unification of all the CNET brands (News.com, Download.com, CNET.com, et al), which has effectively muddied an otherwise good design. Hopefully they'll get things looking better in coming months, as the process continues.

Next year, my aim is to see Webshots win! (After I redesign it, that is.)
