Since launching in 2013, Autodesk’s digital publication Line//Shape//Space has established itself as a best-in-class destination for content that celebrates the way things are designed and made. The site serves rich stories to designers, engineers, architects, makers, and other creators by way of inspirational stories, thought leadership, and business advice. And with 10 awards to its credit in just the past year, the marketing industry is clearly taking note.
Here are the awards Autodesk Line//Shape//Space has won since July 2014:
The Digiday Content Marketing Awards honor the best content creation that connects brands with audiences. Digiday, a modern media publication and events company, is one of Fast Company’s 2015 most innovative media companies. Autodesk Line//Shape//Space bested MasterCard’s Engagement Bureau and Forbes.com’s TeraDataVoice to take the Digiday title.
Hailed as the “Internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times, The Webby Awards—presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences—is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet. Honored alongside Re/code, The Atlantic’s Business Channel, CNN Money, HubSpot, and others, this is Line//Shape//Space’s second Webby Awards nod. (The site was also named a 2014 Business Blog Honoree along with TechCrunch, The Atlantic Business, and others.)
The Content Marketing Awards, presented by the Content Marketing Institute (CMI), honor the world’s best in corporate content creation and distribution. CMI teaches enterprise brands how to attract and retain customers through compelling, multichannel storytelling. Line//Shape//Space received six additional 2014 Content Marketing Awards: Best Overall Digital Design (Silver), Best Multiauthor Blog (Silver), Best Overall Digital Publication (Bronze), Best Feature Article (Bronze), Best Landing Page (Honorable Mention), Best Editorial–New Publication (Honorable Mention).
“To receive this recognition among some of the biggest brands in publishing is an incredible honor for Autodesk,” says Line//Shape//Space Editor in Chief Kylee Swenson. “As we expanded our editorial focus this past year—from helping to connect with small businesses to embracing the future of making things—we’ve been overwhelmed with positive feedback and growth in readership. We’re very proud and excited for the opportunities that lie ahead for Autodesk and Line//Shape//Space.”
As part of the publication’s continued evolution, Autodesk Head of Content Marketing and Line//Shape//Space Editorial Director Dusty DiMercurio is driving a new effort to expand the editorial charter to delve further into the industries that Autodesk serves. “With Line//Shape//Space, we’ve established a strong foundation of content that addresses trends we see across the AEC, manufacturing, and media and entertainment industries,” he says. “Next, we’re looking to dive deeper into stories that connect with the brilliant people who propel these industries forward—and really drive the future of making things.”
