PressRun Presents Sky Creative with Best App Design Award at Design Week Awards 2012

London, UK - 6/14/2012 - PressRunTM, the leading tablet publishing solution recently acquired by Quark Software Inc. and the solution behind iPad apps from Top Gear, Metro, My Ford, and Stuff magazine, announced today that Sky Creative has been recognised as the winner of the Best App Design at Design Week Awards 2012 for its Sky News for iPad app. PressRun CEO Shaun Barriball presented the winner with the PressRun-sponsored Best App Design award during a ceremony held last night in The Artillery Garden at the Honourable Artillery Club in London.

Hosted by Design Week, a leading source of exclusive news, commentary and top design jobs, the Design Week Awards aim to recognise winning design work produced in the last year and celebrate the entire design industry. In selecting a winner for the Best App Design award, judges considered a large number of apps that were launched for Apple, Android or other digital platforms between 15th October 2010 and 31st December 2011. 

Sky Creative’s Sky News for iPad was chosen as the winning app due to its design and execution. It also received praise for its aesthetics, high level of innovation, appropriateness of form and function and creative use of type, texture, color and space.

“We’d like to congratulate Sky Creative for having the most outstanding app design of the past year, which fully embodied the spirit of the Design Week Awards in promoting innovation and excellence in design,” said Barriball. “Sky News for iPad is truly groundbreaking and will certainly push other organisations to elevate the quality of their app design work in the future.”
