For the second year in a row, the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA) has awarded the Artime Group with three 2020 W3 Awards. The Agency received Awards for the design and development of Kitchen United MIX and Technicolor Federal Credit Union websites.
The website entries were judged based on creativity, usability, navigation, functionality, visual design, and ease of use. Artime Group received a Silver Award for the Kitchen United website in the restaurant category. The Agency received two additional Silver Awards for the Technicolor Federal Credit Union (TFCU) website— one in the category of best structure and navigation, and another award for best website design in the banking category.
“For the Kitchen United MIX website, our team had to not only develop a website, but also develop the branding and visual language of their ‘virtual restaurant’ start-up. We developed and designed the website to effectively engage and reach the consumer audience,” said Sam Kim, Vice President of Interactive Technologies for Artime Group. “Virtual restaurants (kitchen-only spaces) was a new idea when we first started working with Kitchen United in 2018. Since the concept was so new, we had a big hurdle in developing a website that consumers could easily understand and adopt.”
He added, “One of our objectives with the Technicolor Federal Credit Union website was to appeal to a younger generation in the film industry. We successfully repositioned their brand by developing a new visual language and creating a UI/UX design that resonates with this audience.”
“We are very proud to be recognized for delivering creative websites that garner attention and receive results. We thank the AIVA for these awards,” concluded Kim.
Over 3,000 entries were submitted from across the globe to the 15th annual W3 Awards. The W3 Awards is the first major web-based marketing competition for agencies and firms of all sizes. Entries are judged based on a standard of excellence as determined by the AIVA. The AIVA is a membership-based organization of leading professionals from a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media.
