Schwabel Studio win’s PDN’s People’s Choice Self-Promo award!
Thanks to everyone who voted, and to PDN for the opportunity! We won for the very website you are looking at right now — schwabelstudio.com. Schwabel Studio Rep and producer Joseph Aranda came up with the site concept, which was to simplify things down to the bare necessities and simply show the work. Los Angeles Graphic Arts programmed the site, and dealt with my nonstop madness to figure out a way to make the site user-resizeable without degrading image quality, so any user can get the maximum out of the site regardless of their screen resolution and personal format preferences (I hate sites that automatically resize or go full screen, but I also hate scroll bars so this was a no-brainer).
A separate site was made for iPhone/iPad users, which auto-redirects when they go to the main site. We used SlideShowPro to manage the photographs, and Los Angeles Graphic Arts integrated SSP’s interface to the design flawlessly. Now we can pretty much drag-and-drop when it’s time to add and organize new work. SSP just released an iPhone-compatible version so I suspect we’ll redo the iPhone version soon as well.
Thank you everyone! The gallery of winners from all categories is up at PDN’s site at http://www.pdngallery.com/contests/selfpromo/2010/
