EL SEGUNDO, Calif., April 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wpromote, one of the nation's largest digital marketing agencies, announced that it has won four international honors from the Horizon Interactive Awards. Now in its 15th season, the competition is one of the most prestigious in the field of interactive and creative media, recognizing the best website designs, videos, online advertising, print media and mobile applications in the world.
Wpromote has been honored for its work on website builds for Aimbridge Hospitality's Jewel Resorts and Marriott's The Lexington New York City, Autograph Collection. Each website earned accolades in categories for Responsive/Mobile Design and Travel & Tourism. A diverse panel of industry professionals from around the world judged thousands of entries for every category based on creativity and originality; overall design/appearance/user experience; communication of message; and technical merit.
"I am extremely proud of the teams that worked with me to bring these new websites to life," said Michael Curran, Senior Director of Client Success at Wpromote. "Both projects presented unique challenges and requirements. Our Houston and Dallas teams' abilities to take our clients' visions and combine them with the best practices of search engine optimization and user experience speak volumes to the talent we have here and the trust our clients have in us."
For the Responsive/Mobile Design category, the Horizon Interactive Awards evaluated projects on code design that allows websites to adapt to difference experiences across devices, platforms and resolutions. Both of Wpromote's web designs feature mobile frameworks, which are able to automatically adjust based on where and how users are viewing the sites' content, giving smartphone lovers the same seamless experience offered on a computer.
With both websites created for hospitality clients in the high-grossing tourist destinations of Jamaica and New York, the award-winning entries were recognized in the Travel & Tourism category for their ability to paint a clear picture of their unique services. The websites achieved this with detailed local area information, attraction-based landing pages, enticing imagery and creative content that resonates with today's travelers.
