Oneupweb added another award to what was already a record-setting year, when the International Academy of the Visual Arts awarded a 2006 Gold Davey Award to Oneupweb's creative department for the company's corporate services brochure. With more than 3,500 entries from across the U.S. and around the world, the Davey Awards honors the finest creative work in many categories produced by agencies and companies worldwide.
"We are particularly pleased by this award," says Oneupweb CEO Lisa Wehr. "For one thing, it reinforces to our clients and our staff that the talent available to them is second to none. I'm equally pleased to see us win in a print category. We are frequently known and recognized for our online work. It's nice to display our versatility and see the talents of Oneupweb's gifted individuals recognized."
