Award winning Maryland web design firm, Blue Water Media, took home 3 silver statues in the recent Davey Awards competition. The annual International Davey Awards honors the achievements of "Creative Davids" in the design world, who derive their strength from big ideas, rather than stratospheric budgets.

These noteworthy achievements are a direct result of the Blue Water Media design team’s ongoing commitment to excellence.

In The Wild Bird Centers redesign, Blue Water Media gave the franchise website,, a complete facelift that included a restructured navigation and featured artwork by artist, Charley Harper. These enhancements build upon Blue Water Media’s earlier implementation of a full-fledged content and franchisee management system with an intranet, message board, calendar, and online store option for franchisees.
