I voted for Koox as the winner for Developer Site of the Year. I thought the website was nicely built and really enjoyable to navigate. The art direction and the illustrations are superb. It also a great example of technology used to elevate the design. They used WebGL but it doesn't feel too heavy or "too much", it is applied really deliberately and allows great little details such as the parallax or the shadows.

The website is crafted so well. When I first saw it I was really impressed by the loading speed and smoothness with all that 3d models and WebGL scenes. It truly deserves to be Developer Site of the Year.

I follow the work of Locomotive even before being part of the Awwwards Jury. Their work is always elegant, obsessed with details and perfectly executed.
They always find stunning UI solutions that I love collecting in my private library for inspiration. Most of their sites have been used in my talks as great examples of good practices on the web.
