An international competition is underway, with some of the most creative designers and designers from around the world competing to see who will emerge as the winner of the 2018 WSBA web design award.
The WSBA Web Design Award is presented by Google, and will be presented in its fifth edition in 2018.
The first year of the WSBA was dominated by the best of the best in web design with the likes of Wacom, Adobe, and others winning awards.
However, 2017 was the first year where a number of highly regarded designers from the web design industry competed for the WSB award, including Wacoms web design winner and W3C web design chief, and Web Design International (WDI), the global leader in web and mobile design.
In the 2018 edition, designers from across the web and design industry have competed for a variety of award categories, including web design design, mobile design, graphics design, social design, UX design, and typography.
The web design categories are now split into two, web design malaise and web design best.
“I have to congratulate my friend and colleague Alex Hirsch and the team at Web Design Institute for their outstanding work in the 2018 web design category.
I am especially pleased to be part of this prestigious program and I hope to continue to work with the team to create amazing products for the next years awards,” said Joris Van Den Buren, WSBA CEO.”
The WSB is the only program where all web design professionals can be recognized as a leader in their field.
We have a proud tradition of awarding outstanding Web Design awards.
This year, we will celebrate the outstanding design talents and the outstanding work they have done on a wide variety of projects.
We are proud of the diverse team, and we hope to see many more outstanding entries this year.”
The 2018 WSB awards were held on Sunday, October 15 at the San Francisco Hilton hotel and Spa.
The nominees were announced on Friday, October 13, and the final vote will be announced on Wednesday, October 18.
In 2018, Wacomm Web Design winner and Web Designer International (WWI) chief, Alex Hays, was the only WSBA nominee to be on the final list.
In his first appearance at the WSBI awards, Hays said that he is looking forward to representing the WSBR in 2019.
“This is my first time at the Web Design Oscars and I really appreciate the opportunity to be in such a prestigious program.
It is an honour to be recognized by WSBA, and I am looking forward being the best Web Designer,” he said.
The W3CSS Web Design category has also been split into categories this year.
“This year I will focus on my current project with the W3 CSS Team, which is a new HTML5 and CSS5 plugin for Chrome,” said Hugo De La Cruz, WWI chief designer and a W3 designer.
“I am also happy to be a candidate in the Web Designer Awards for the 2019 WSBR, which I am proud to be nominated for.”
“We have been working together for some time, so it’s really cool to have someone from the W2 community be nominated,” said WWI technical director, Jonathan Wibbs.
“In the future I hope we will be working together on new projects and collaborating with other web designers to create awesome work.
We hope that our work together can help others create great web experiences.”
The WSBR is currently celebrating its 30th anniversary, and it has also become an annual award for Web Design.
