On behalf of the CSS Design Awards community we congratulate DPDK on taking out Website of the Year 2018 with the brilliant Nike Reactor site!
We also wish to extend a massive thank you to WONDR for a fantastic collaboration and visually beautiful WOTY showcase site. Thanks always to the Judges for their time and dedication.
2018 was an amazing year for web design and development and the toughest yet for the CSSDA international judging panel. Many well crafted sites were neck and neck throughout the judging period with Nike Reactor site by DPDK and Foosball World Cup 18 site by AQuest tied until the final hour! The quality and creativity of all finalists was sublime and highly inspiring.
Well done everyone for continuing to raise the bar and evolving the craft of digital communications.
