We are pleased to announce that this project was awarded an IABC Gold Quill Award of Merit in the category: Communication for the web.
Here are some of the judges’ comments:
“The sample shows that the agency went beyond a standard refresh and created an interactive, informative and helpful website for an audience that has little time to dig around for details. The content was poignant and direct and without patronizing and overselling. Dr. Van Hemert’s message was authentic and meaningful…as evidenced by the results. The final product was an incredibly powerful tool to connect sponsors with a cause and teachers with instruction – the portal portion linking to resources is well-orchestrated, straightforward and easily accessible.”
“There was a lot to convey behind the key messages - most importantly - to honestly inform visitors about the organization and the mission, the importance and quality of the educational unit and the design competition. The website was an elegant example of how this could be accomplished succinctly and still touch an emotional chord."
“The narrative was succinct, the objectives clear and the [website] provided the opportunity for a user experience.”
We also got some great feedback from our wonderful supporters when we shared this exciting news on Facebook:
