Following shortly on the footsteps of winning four W3 Awards earlier this month, MJD has been honored with five additional Davey Awards for the Grammys, Etnies, Stride Rite and Benefunder.
Our work for the Grammys brought home the Gold Award for a Mobile App in Entertainment. We completely revamped the app this year across iOS and Android tablets and smartphones, adding a new user interface as well as new functionality.
Our microsite for the Etnies Marana Bloodline shoe launch also took home the Gold in the Consumer Product Website category. You can check out the site here.
The Ritefit app for Stride Rite brought revolutionarily accurate, and fun foot sizing for children’s shoes. Patented algorithms that control the iPad’s camera get measurements within 1 millimeter, and combine with a whimsical UI, games, a virtual dressing room, and the ability to buy shoes within the app. For this we were awarded a Silver in the Mobile Features Category for Best Use of a Mobile Camera.
Benefunder took home two Silver Davey Awards in the Website: Financial Services and Website: Activism categories. Benefunder is disrupting their industry by facilitating donations to today’s top researchers who are working on breakthrough discoveries that are impacting our world.
With nearly 4,000 entries from across the US and around the world, the Davey Awards honors the finest creative work from the best small agencies, firms, and companies worldwide.
