RICHMOND, Va., June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  West Cary Group, an award-winning marketing communications and advertising agency headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, has been honored with a 2012 Summit Creative Award (SCA) by the Summit International Awards (SIA) organization. The firm received a silver award in the Government Website category for its redesign work on the Henrico Economic Development Authority (EDA) website, Henrico.com.

"Digital marketing is the growth engine of our agency right now," says Moses Foster, West Cary Group CEO and winner of the Virginia Minority Supplier Diversity Council's 2011 Entrepreneur of the Year award. "To be recognized internationally for our digital work is both an honor and a testament to what can happen when you have a truly great partnership between an agency and a client."

West Cary Group dove deeply into the website's data, and the resulting analysis guided the redesign.  Informed improvements were made to the site's architecture, content and navigation so that the most sought-after information became easier for visitors to access. 

Additional site upgrades included an interactive map on the home page, as well as design elements that visually complemented the EDA's new marketing materials and its digital newsletter Henrico Now—both designed by West Cary Group. The combination of analytical rigor and compelling creative is what impressed the SIA panel of judges, which included professionals from marketing agencies worldwide. 

The Summit Creative Award was established in 1994 to recognize creative agencies internationally. The competition offers participants a chance to showcase their talents and have their work judged by advertising experts. Companies and individuals from more than 50 countries and five continents have participated in this prestigious competition.
