Lounge Lizard takes Gold at W3 Awards
It was announced that Lounge Lizard has taken home the gold at the 9th Annual W3 Awards for 2014. Lounge Lizard won for their exceptional work on The Broadway League’s website, Broadway.org under the category of entertainment in the website division.
“I take a lot of pride in winning an award like this,” said CEO and founder of Lounge Lizard, Ken Braun. “We have always set the bar high when it comes to our creativity and ability to craft something that is highly functional, unique and that captures the brand of a client. Winning a W3 Award is a nice recognition from our peers that we are doing what we set out to.”
The W3 Awards honors creative excellence on the web and recognizes those creative professionals and companies that work behind the scenes. W3 Awards celebrate the very best in Websites, Web Advertising, Mobile Sites/Apps and Web Video. Winning entries are chosen as Best in Show, Gold and Silver Award winners.
For The Broadway League, Lounge Lizard designed a highly integrated website to provide customers the ultimate resource for Broadway shows in both New York and North America. Using an intuitive, user-interface design combined with an exciting visual layout and built in six languages, this website matched the client’s needs with a great concept which resulted in a fantastic, award-winning finished product.
“At the end of the day it is about making sure the client is happy and they are getting the results they want,” added Braun. “But this is definitely icing on the cake.”
This is not the first time Lounge Lizard has taken home a trophy from the W3 Awards. In 2012 they received a Gold Award for their design of the Yokahu Kayaks website under the tourism category in the website division.
A unique aspect of this web competition is that it is accessible to the biggest agencies, the smallest firms and everyone in between. The W3 is sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, which is an invitation only group of top-tier professionals from media, interactive, advertising and marketing firms. Winners are chosen based on merit rather than if the submitter is a Fortune-500 company.
