2013 Round-up

SA Web Awards received 224 website submissions during 2013. Of these, there were 84 Bronze SAWA winners, 13 Silver SAWA winners, and unfortunately 127 sites failed to win an award. (There were no Gold SA Web Award winners.)

 

Top Website Design Agency for 2013

       The top-scoring website design agency for 2013 was Jam Factory. Jam Factory is no stranger to picking up SAWA awards, and during 2013 Jam Factory’s websites won 6 Bronze SA Web Awards and 7 Silver SA Web Awards. Congratulations Jam Factory!

 

Top Scoring Websites

The three highest scoring websites submitted during 2013 were:

Website       Score       Designed by
redespresso.com   88%   Siegfried Grimbeek
torqzone.co.za   85%   Jam Factory
onelaw.co.za   85%   Jam Factory

 
Thank you to everybody who submitted websites for review during 2013. To those whose sites did not win an SA Web Award, don’t lose heart! Many sites came very close to winning a Bronze SA Web Award, and a few tweaks to content, layout or functionality could be all that’s needed. And remember, you can also order a comprehensive analysis report for your website, compiled by the SA Web Award administrators.

Building a Website - Part 1

In this multi-part series we explore the process of building a house and highlight the many similarities with building a website. That’s nothing new, we hear you saying. True, but in this series we take you step by step through the design and implementation, drawing parallels between the physical and electronic worlds along the way. Even if you have encountered this analogy before, you may be surprised at how closely these processes approximate one another.

Splash Pages

Wikipedia defines a splash page as a “page of a website that is a sort of pre-home page front page”. That’s a bit clumsy, so to put it another way: if you implement a splash page it will be the page that a visitor to your website lands on before proceeding to your home page.

In this article we highlight the difference between that rare gem we call the “Useful Splash Page” and the rest of them unaffectionately called “Senseless Splash Pages”.
