DALLAS, Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Standing Dog Interactive, a Dallas, TX-based Internet marketing agency, closed out 2015 earning two distinguished industry honors while also giving back to the surrounding community.
For the third year in a row, the digital marketing agency has earned an Adrian Award from the Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International (HSMAI). A Silver Adrian has been awarded to the company for its creation of a new website for Pink Shell Beach Resort & Spa. Judges recognized the project for its exceptional design and the financial impact the new site has had on the hotel's bottom line.
Standing Dog was able to produce a fully responsive website incorporating sleek visual elements for mobile and desktop users. High-quality photos and audience-focused content capture the ambiance of the resort while users easily navigate the site.
The Silver Adrian is just one of two awards the agency picked up at the end of 2015. The agency built websites for Greystar properties Elan Union Station and Solana Cherry Creek, with both being finalists in the 2015 Tribute Awards for Most Innovative Website. The Solana Cherry Creek site took home the grand prize.
Knowing the significance websites serve for today's apartment hunters, Standing Dog was tasked with the challenge of creating a cutting-edge design without sacrificing content. A sleek, parallax design complete with high-quality photos now awaits Solana Cherry Creek visitors, and a user-friendly navigation bar makes it easy to quickly locate desired information. Flip card features were also utilized throughout the site, allowing users to access additional details without being overwhelmed with content.
"We are honored to be recognized by these two prestigious organizations, but what's most rewarding is seeing the difference our work makes for our clients," said Mike Wylie, founder and CEO of Standing Dog. "The positive results they see are what truly keep us striving to innovate. We look forward to keeping our clients soaring to new levels of success in 2016."
While client satisfaction remains a core focus headed into the new year, Wylie and his team also look forward to giving back in the local community as the agency enters its 11th year in business. In addition to their daily demands, Standing Dog employees devoted hundreds of hours of time in 2015 to local charities including Meals on Wheels and the North Texas Food Bank. Employees also raised funds to split between Dallas Pets Alive and Genesis Women's Shelter & Support through a friendly, month-long penny war competition. Five other charities, including White Rock Lake Conservancy and St. John's Episcopal School, benefited from contributions by Wylie and Standing Dog President Rob Phillips.
