The future is digital say award winners

28 June, 2017

As the closing date approaches for entries to this year’s Archiboo Web Awards, companies who triumphed last year have told how winning has boosted and benefitted their businesses.

Albert Hill, co-founder of The Modern House, which won Best Written and Best of Best categories, said:

“It has been great for us and our designers to be recognised for all the hard work and care that has gone into creating our website. It has been a great motivator for our team and has also been good to include mention of the award in our pitches to help prove the power of our website which is, effectively, our shop window!”

Martin Davies head of communications at BDP, who scooped Best Use of Technology in 2016 said:

“Our website is extremely important to us and we are constantly looking at new ways of using technology to enhance our media presence and reach new audiences. Winning an Archiboo Web Award meant a lot to us and it gave us a boost to push ourselves further.

“As a large and complex organisation, it was refreshing to know we had a good UX and simple navigation on our website to represent our brand and culture across a wide reach. We continue to look at ways to improve this and are looking at new ways of using technologies like video and AR to achieve this.”

Radek Kaminski, the company’s web and intranet manager, said:

“The award for Best Use of Technology is a great recognition of the direction we took while developing our website and our continued journey towards more advanced tools to give our visitors the best possible experience”

Ben Adams Architects, which scooped the award for Best Use of Social Media, said:

“The future is digital. Winning the Archiboo award for Best Use of Social Media has given our practice confidence and validation for our efforts to share our brand with the world.

“Every week we take a considered approach to posting interesting and beautiful content on our channels. This has been met with positivity and a growth in followers and awareness. We are very conscious of portraying life as it is at BAA, our love of design and the built environment. Architecture is a hot topic on social media and we enjoy being part of that conversation.”

The entry deadline for this year’s Archiboo Web Awards is July 18th.
