Ames, Iowa- In August, Global Reach was recognized by the Web Marketing Association with two new WebAwards; one for their work on the Iowa Attorney General Website, and the other for their work on the Court Avenue Brewing Company website.
Court Avenue Restaurant & Brewing Company worked with Global Reach to give their website a modern look, along with a responsive, mobile-friendly web design that would make the website easily accessible to users on-the-go. The full service Des Moines restaurant & brewpub, located at the center of the Court Avenue Entertainment District, wanted a design that would reflect the downtown, urban feel of their physical location.
The website was honored with the 2015 WebAward for Outstanding Achievement in Web Development. Unlike many other website award programs, the WebAwards strives to recognize the individuals behind the work, celebrating the personal accomplishment behind some of today's highest quality websites.
The team responsible for producing the award winning website was led by Senior Project Manager, Christina Klinge. The team also included Art Director, Dinko Ibukic, Creative Director, Linda Griffen, Product Manager, Bruno Zugay, Senior Developer, Oli Ispas, Quality Assurance, Ahmad Al-Kofahi, and Project Manager, Deb Mueggenberg.
The Web Marketing Association’s WebAwards program is in its 17th year, making it the longest running annual website award competition. Each year, websites from 96 industries are reviewed and judged in an effort to set a standard of excellence for website development. Winners are chosen by a committee made up of distinguished internet marketing, online advertising, PR, and website design professionals, all with a common goal of growing the quality of online advertising, internet marketing, and website promotion.
All entries are judged based on a list of seven criteria on a scale of 0-10 points: Design, Innovation, Content, Technology, Interactivity, Copywriting, and Ease of Use. Each website is then given a score between 0 and 70 points, and the highest score per category will take home the ‘best in industry’ title.
