Platform Magazine wins Hermes Creative Award

Platform Magazine, a web site I developed for The University of Alabama Advertising and Public Relations department, has won the Gold International Hermes Creative Award for the Web site overall category.

“The Hermes Creative Awards is an international awards competition for creative professionals involved in the concept, writing and design of traditional and emerging media. The Gold Award is presented to those entries judged to exceed the high standards of the industry.”

Here’s an excerpt from the site’s original press release:

“The site, built by Birmingham Web developer Ryan Burnett of Burnett Communications (, addresses topics in careers, leadership, ethics, tips, and toolbox. Features include articles, an AP style quiz, podcasts, a blog (also accessible by RSS feed) and video interviews with Betsy Plank, UA alumna and chair of The Plank Center.”
