We are proud to announce that concrete5 was named the Best CMS for Designers at the 2015 Peoples Choice CMS Awards at CMScritic.com. We sincerely thank all of you who nominated and voted. It is tremendously rewarding to have such a wonderful and supportive community.

The 2015 awards recognize the top open source projects in many categories which include the best marketing automation software, ecommerce, forums and more. These winning projects are chosen by CMS Critic readers and community members.

Designers do love concrete5 because it was designed to serve creative services shops. Back in the 90s Andrew and Franz were working together as a chop-shop for ad firms that needed anything interactive in Portland. Those experiences started the journey toolkit that matured for 5 years as closed software before going open source in 2008 as concrete5. The first project ever built with concrete5 was for the AdCouncil - so its no surprise that we continue to strike a chord designers. If youve got a little time and know-how, you will NEVER have to tell a creative director thats just not possible when youre building their vision with concrete5.
