Del Padre Digital has been awarded Best in Class by the 2008 Interactive Media Awards, for excellence in the design, development and implementation of the most recent version of our Web site, delpadre.com.
When we launched this version of delpadre.com, version six, we knew we were introducing one of the most search-engine optimized Flash sites on the Web today. But to be honored among some of the best companies in the country, and some of the best designers anywhere, validates our belief that all of our work is cutting-edge, not just in SEO. Especially given the fact that we’ve been recognized for our own company’s site.
The honor, granted by the Interactive Media Awards, places Del Padre in the company of several well-heeled and Fortune 500 companies, including Volkswagen, McDonalds, Sony, Pepsi, and Kodak, among others, whose sites were designed by some of the top interactive media and marketing agencies in the world .
A little more about the IMAs … the competition honors the Web’s most professional work, judging sites on a number of criteria, ranging from design, usability, and innovation in technical features, to standards compliance and content. Only a fraction of sites entered into the IMA competition earn Best in Class status each year. The awards are sponsored by the Interactive Media Council, Inc., a nonprofit organization of leading Web designers, developers, programmers, advertisers, and other Web-related professionals — all of them seeking to elevate the standards of excellence on the Internet.
