The votes have been counted and verified, and we can now reveal that the winner of the FWA Site of the Year Award for 2011 is… The Museum of Me for Intel.
Created by Japanese agency Projector Inc, the Museum of Me offers an inventive and fun way of viewing your Facebook content, in the form of a personalised museum exhibition. In a year where many brands tried to find ways to tap into Facebook’s vast network of users, The Museum of Me stood out for being both engaging and beautifully executed. You can visit the site at museumofme.intel.com and the film below shows how it works.
Intel’s Museum of Me was released in June last year. You can find CR’s original post on the project here. Credits: Projector Inc; Deltro Inc; Taiyo Kikaku Co Ltd; Rhizomatiks; MountPosition Inc.
The overall FWA Site of the Year winner was chosen by a panel of industry folk, including myself. As in previous years, the FWA also held a People’s Choice Vote, and the winner of this was Chris Milk’s excellent website 3 Dreams of Black for Danger Mouse and Danielle Luppi’s album ROME, which features Norah Jones and Jack Black. The site can be found at ro.me (requires Google Chrome) and the demo below offers an introduction.
