New web design award winner: ‘It’s hard to find people who don’t want to use it’
New web designer and founder of DesignForum.com David E. Jones has won the Web Design Awards for “The New Web: From the Future to the Present.”
The first-time award winner will receive $1,000 and a certificate for an online course on web design and web design trends.
“It’s a really nice recognition of what I do,” Jones said.
“The web design community is kind of a big tent, and it’s hard for me to find anyone who doesn’t want or need to use this stuff.”
The winner of the Web design awards is: “The Next Web” and the winners of “The Design for People” and “The Web Design Industry Award.”
The Web Design awards will be held in Washington, D.C. on May 11, the same day the World Wide Web was first introduced to the world in 1992.
The World Wide web is the first and largest, worldwide network of Web content that uses the Internet to share information, and allows users to make and receive calls, send and receive email, browse the Web, and access websites, videos, and other content online.
“I was very happy that I won this award,” Jones, of Minneapolis, Minnesota, said in a statement.
“There’s so much innovation happening in the Web right now, and I think the Web is just beginning to catch up.
And I’m honored to be the first to make the web work for me.”
The web design competition was sponsored by the Design Forum, a nonprofit organization founded by Jones and his wife, Jessica.
The two have created numerous websites and apps for the Internet, including DesignForums.com, which provides courses in web design.
“DesignForum’s mission is to foster innovation and growth in the design industry,” said Design Forum CEO Tom Wroblewski.
“We’re delighted to be recognized as winners of this year’s Web Design Award.
The design community has really embraced the new technology and is working to make it a reality.”
