Milwaukee, MN (PRWEB) October 5, 2007
Three Web sites created by Hanson Dodge Creative, America's leading branding and design firm focused on the active lifestyle consumer, have been named winners in the Web Marketing Association's eleventh annual WebAwards.
The WebAwards is an international competition that selects the best Web sites in 96 industries while setting the standard of excellence for all Web site development. Sites are judged on seven criteria including design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copy and ease of use.
Trek Bicycle's Lime Bike Launch site (http://www.trekbikes.com/lime) was named Best Marketing Web Site, meaning it received the highest score in the marketing category. The site, which was recognized for its beautiful, dynamic design and outstanding use of online technology, was created as part of an integrated campaign that included advertising, public relations, POS and events.
Johnson Outdoors' Extrasport (http://www.extrasport.com) and Escape Watercraft (http://www.escapewatercraft.com) sites were named Outstanding Web sites in the consumer goods and B2B categories respectively. An "Outstanding" designation indicates that the site earned at least 60 out of a possible 70 points. Both sites were lauded for outstanding design, content and ease of use.
This is the second year that Hanson Dodge has earned a best of category award. Last year, the "Road to Xavier" admissions site created for Xavier University was awarded the Best University Web Site. For a complete list of this year's winners visit http://www.webaward.org.
