Web award winners @ SXSW 2008

So SXSW 2008 is on at the moment. It’s hard to believe it’s been a year already since I attended last years Interactive festival. How time flies and all that.

So the web awards winners have been announced. The very talented mob at Preloaded took out the game category as well as best of show with Launchball, a great time-wasting (and educational) puzzle game for the Science Museum. Congrats!

The winner of the art category was Viscosity, a neat flash toy that lets you create cool abstract pieces at the stroke of a brush (er, mouse). It’s a shame Wolff Ollins didn’t get their hands on this tool when they were designing the London 2012 logo. Might have come up with something a bit nicer… (Oooh was that bitchy / unoriginal / hackish? Do I care?)
