Bright Corner Wins Whitespace Web Site Redesign Contest For Project Gutenberg

TAMPA BAY – March 19, 2004 – Whitespace, one of the Internet’s leading Web design communities, today awarded Bright Corner first place in its site redesign competition. The competition was a charitable redesign of Project Gutenberg, the oldest producer of free electronic books with over 12,000 books produced by hundreds of volunteers. Finalists included 35 entries from various Web design companies and individuals, and the competition was judged by some of the industry’s most respected information architecture and visual design experts.

The judges comments included the following reviews:

"However my over all favourite had to be Bright Corner. This design, not only looked very professional, it managed to address the shear amount of home page content in a very intelligent manner. Everything is laid out in a logical, hierarchical fashion and design is used to structure the information, not simply to add a veneer of style over the top. The excellent information design, combined with appropriate branding, marked this submission to me as a clear winner." – Andy Budd,
"Bright Corner's rendition of the Project Gutenberg homepage has a nice feel to it that hits you at first glance: the navigation is clear, the page structure and organization makes sense immediately, and the colors and heading sizes make it very easy to quickly scan the page to find what you are looking for." – Dan Rubin,
"Bright Corner’s redesign of Project Gutenberg has succesfully integrated an assortment of elements that improve user interaction. This redesign feels like a decent homepage, with scannable information and comprehesible search options. The elegant use of iconography throughout the page adds up to the overall admirable style. Bright Corner did put some considerable effort in creating a good information architecture, with the end user in mind." – Didier Hilhorst
"A very clear choice, in my eyes. Bright Corner's design does an excellent job of displaying the many options and snippets of information a visitor to Project Gutenberg might require; be it their first, or their fifty-first visit to the site. Navigation, search, news, recent additions, most popular choices - it's all there, and the design allows room for additional information to be added, should the need arise." – Dunstan Orchard,
