Well with the Webby Awards done, here comes the “Yang” of the awards industry…
The Mudbrick Awards announced their winners earlier this month. This is one award you don’t want to win, trust me. This is the “Worst of the Web”, announced globally, and the sites are reviewed (quite Cruelly) by the judges, who happen to be some of the most prominent men & women in CyberTown. The reviews are hysterical!
Go check it out. <more nervous laughter>
Big Los…uh winners this year are Quaker Oats, for Corporate, Gem Hosting (ironically a web design/host company) for small/medium business, and the State Of Texas for Government.
It’s needless to say, these designers (even the runner ups) are finished in the Web Design field, but let’s not let them go into the night in vain. Anyone serious in designing websites should see these sites and learn. I’ve always said that bad web designers have tought me more than my heroes, Jeffrey Zeldman, Lance Arthur & Glenn Davis ever could.
