On February 28th, 2015, the Knoxville AAF recognized work done in 2014 by Knoxville's advertising and marketing agencies at the annual American Advertising Awards. Once again, VIEO Design walked away with a number of the shiny web design awards we love so much.
This year’s gala marked the 50th anniversary of the American Advertising Awards, formerly known as the ADDYs (the awards themselves are still known by that name). The theme of the evening’s celebration was “Bring on the Gold,” and the voting committee certainly took the gold standard seriously—the competition was very tough this year for all agencies.
Our 2014 ADDY Award Winning Web Design
VIEO Design took home 3 Silver ADDYs for our work in 2014, all in the category “Elements of Advertising: Responsive Design.” Since responsive design is one of our specialties, we were certainly proud and happy for the clients whose websites won awards.
The responsive websites that earned Silver ADDY Awards were for HAUS Personal Vaporizers, Kimball’s Jewelers, and Infrasave Radiant Heaters.
Award-winning responsive design requires a lot of expertise, even on relatively simple sites. But our winners included elements that show off how VIEO can make responsive design work beautifully with a wide range of designs: the HAUS Personal Vaporizers site uses parallax scrolling as well as responsive design, and the Kimball’s Jewelers site features a tiling effect that shifts responsively at different viewing screen sizes.
We also won 3 Bronze Citations of Excellence:
- Integrity Laboratories responsive website, for Elements of Advertising: Responsive Design
- HAUS Personal Vaporizers responsive parallax website, for Digital Advertising: Websites B-to-B Products
- Infrasave Radiant Heaters responsive parallax website, for Digital Advertising: Websites B-to-B Products
The black-tie event featured a formal dinner and cocktails, and nearly everyone was wearing at least a little bit of the night’s signature color. During the occasional break from the awards presentation, the crowd was entertained by singer-songwriter Erick Baker, who has performed with musicians like James Blunt, Brandi Carlile, the Goo Goo Dolls, John Legend, and Grace Potter.
The night was a treat for the VIEO Team (we had our own table, ballers that we are), and we’re looking forward to next year’s competition! This early in the year, it’s exciting to think about all the exceptional work we’ll do in the coming months on behalf of our clients.
