Systems Alliance, a digital and IT consulting firm helping clients build, assess and optimize online properties, today announced it had received a 2012 Web Marketing Association WebAward for a website it designed and developed for the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth.
The Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth provides educational programs for academically gifted and talented youth worldwide. Recognizing that its existing website was not aligned with the evolving communication needs of the Center, and with the importance and scope of its web presence increasing, CTY engaged Systems Alliance to complete an analysis and web design project.
The redesigned website, built in the SiteExecutive CMS, launched in February and includes new information architecture, a vibrant and dynamic visual design that aligns with the CTY mission and culture, and leverages responsive web design (RWD) techniques to deliver high value content on devices of any screen size. ‘We’re thrilled that the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth website was recognized with a 2012 Education Outstanding Website Award,” said Mark Dabrowski, vice president of Web Effectiveness, Systems Alliance. “This award confirms the high value to our client that our Web Effectiveness team strives for on every project.”
In its 16th year, the WebAwards competition recognizes the best websites across 96 industries while setting the standard of excellence for all website development. This year, over 2,000 entries from 42 countries in 96 industry categories were received. Sites were judged in seven categories including design, copy writing, innovation, content, interactivity, navigation, and use of technology.
The Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth website was recognized “For Outstanding Achievement in Web Development” and received the award of Outstanding Website.
