Science NetLinks was recently awarded 3 Interactive Media Awards for its redesigned website. Science NetLinks won the Best in Class award in the education, nonprofit and science/technology categories.
For most of 2011 the Science NetLinks team worked with the design firm, Blenderbox, to evalute all Science NetLinks content and brainstorm possibilities for effectively showcasing its resources on the redesigned website. It was important to Science NetLinks for users to find resources easily and to show users content that they probably didn't know existed. After many, many discussions and meetings, Blenderbox, had the information they needed to create some incredibly dynamic and smart designs. The new site was launched at the end of October 2011 and in early 2012, the site got noticed.
As stated in an article published by AAAS, "Anna Lawrence, spokesperson for the Interactive Media Awards, explained that Science NetLinks was entered in the competition under the science/technology category. 'The judges were so impressed that they gave it an award under the nonprofit and education categories as well,' she said. 'To win three awards for one entry is very rare and is just a testament to the quality and professionalism of this work.'"
The Science NetLinks team is very proud of the work they accomplished during the redesign and of design and navigation that Blenderbox developed. Be sure to check out the new site and take a look at the blog post, Take Us for a Test Drive, to learn about some of the new features.
