GDUSA_logo (1k image)Last night at about 5 pm CT I was informed via e-mail that ohTwentyone (aka Me, in the attic above my in-laws' garage) has been awarded two (2) American Web Design Awards by Graphic Design USA Magazine.

Despite all the really great work we've done for clients in the last year the awards are specifically for the ohTwentyone blog and KeepOpen.com, both of which are personal projects.

There's a joke in there about client ruining projects...but I'm not going to make it. The reality is that it took me well over a year of fits and starts to design either one of those sites, and clients don't typically have that sort of time, or budget.

Although, if you are a client who has the time & budget to have an award-winning web designer spend a year throwing out concepts, by all means call. wink
