If you haven’t visited the Design Archives yet, today is the perfect day to peruse this hearty resource. AIGA has been busy gathering hundreds of pieces for this definitive design collection, and they’re adding to it all the time.
That’s all fine and well, you say, but why are we bringing this up today? The Design Archives have been named as a finalist in the SXSW Web Awards, meaning they’re now eligible for the People’s Choice Award. Hundreds of sites were nominated in 16 different categories, which have now been whittled down to five in each category.
The Design Archives are filed in Art–which is something we’ll have a talk about later–and they’re up against four other sites which are surely quite worthy in their own right, but not about design. Wouldn’t it be really cool if we all voted for the Design Archives to show our support for design? Wouldn’t it?
You can vote once a day here. The winner will be announced March 12 at the SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin. We’ll be there to celebrate on your behalf.
