We heard it from our guys on the ground at South by Southwest as they were walking offstage. The AP Timeline Reader created by Vectorform won the SXSW Interactive Award for Technical Achievement.This means our work is officially the digital experience that is “re-inventing and re-defining the technical parameters of our online experience,” according to SXSW.
The HTML5/CSS3 experience is a revolutionary way to visualize, customize, and consume the news. We were anticipating a win, as were our friends over at Business 2 Community, but it is always a great feeling to have an award in-hand. Dominic Espinosa, Vectorform’s man on the ground, picked up the award. Fitting, as he was lead interaction designer on The AP Timeline Reader, and also because he also led the all-new, much-loved Vectorform project Foursquare Playground, which debuted yesterday to celebrate the launch of Internet Explorer 9 . Our entire team is thrilled by the win. “Yea, that’s right, baby!” Espinosa says.
We’re proud to be recognized with this award, and delighted to take some time to recognize the amazing work being done by our team. But now its back to work, because the thing about re-invention is that it never, ever stops.
