Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) April 17, 2008
The Webby Awards, the leading international honor for the Web, today recognized SolutionSet clients Kaboose, Education.com, and Dillon's List as winners in the Community, Education, Family/Parenting, and Personal Website categories. The websites were named Official Honorees, a distinction that recognizes work exhibiting remarkable achievement. The work is produced and managed by SolutionSet, The Brand Technology Company, headquartered in Palo Alto with offices in San Francisco.
Hailed as the "Oscars of the Internet" by The New York Times, The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet, including Websites, Interactive Advertising, Online Film & Video, and Mobile Websites. The awards are judged by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences, a global organization that includes David Bowie, Harvey Weinstein, Arianna Huffington, AKQA Global Creative Director Rei Inamoto, Matt Groening, Jamie Oliver, Internet inventor Vinton Cerf, and RealNetworks CEO Rob Glaser.
"The Webby Awards honors the outstanding work that is setting the standards for the Internet," said David-Michel Davies, executive director of The Webby Awards. "SolutionSet's Official Honoree selections are a testament to the skill, ingenuity, and vision of their creators."
"Last year SolutionSet clients took home two Honoree awards, and this year our clients won four," said SolutionSet CEO Kurt Garbe. "This is just one small illustration of how our company has continued to push the envelope in the interactive space and deliver engaging, quality work to our clients."
