The winners of the 2009 W3 awards were announced by the International Academy of Visual Arts and Global Reach has received two Silver W3 awards for the creation of BOS website, as well as a re-design of long-time client Blank Park Zoo. The W3 Awards honor outstanding websites, web marketing, and web advertising created by some of the best interactive agencies, designers, and creators worldwide.
"With every award that Global Reach receives, we feel a renewed passion in creating websites for our clients that exceed expectations in design, usability, and execution," said Iacovos Zachariades, President of Global Reach. "Our team is proud to bring home two awards this year and humbled to be in the company of some truly great designers."
Both websites are built on Global Reach's proprietary content management solution, SiteViz. Using this web page authoring and publishing engine, administrators are able to create pages and update the content (both on internal pages and the homepage). With a customized design and flexible setup, both websites present user-friendly interfaces that appeal to their target markets.
"BOS holds itself to a very high standard in performance and presentation, which is important to convey through the website," said Carl Wertzberger, Director of Outlets. "BOS' website aesthetic creates the perfect first impression to our online audiences – it is easily navigable with a rich design and layout."
