Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 28, 2011
LBi Atlanta, a division of the world’s largest independent advertising, marketing and technology agency, won a Silver ADDY Award for its innovative work with Spectracide® pest solutions. Announced yesterday in a ceremony at Turner Field’s 755 Club, the award recognizes LBi’s success in the Interactive Media – Microsite Division.
“We are honored to be chosen for this prestigious award,” said Brooke Buerkle, Account Manager at LBi Atlanta. “We look forward to continuing our relationship with Spectracide to create innovative marketing solutions for their products.”
The ADDYs—the advertising industry's largest and most representative competition for creative excellence—acknowledged LBi for its creation of the Spectracide Interactive Pest Finder (IPF). Launched in June 2010, the IPF (http://www.spectracide.com/IPF) is an interactive Flash application that allows users to identify a specific pest (insect or plant) and instantly receive information about the appropriate Spectracide solution and where to find it.
Spearheaded by LBi Atlanta Group Creative Director Matt Daly, the IPF features an animated U.S. map that clearly shows annual pest lifecycles relevant to a user’s location. It provides pest information and features videos demonstrating how Spectracide products should be used for maximum effectiveness.
“LBi Atlanta has done an excellent job … building the foundation for what will be an ongoing interactive space to educate consumers on how Spectracide products solve consumers’ lawn and garden problems,” said Ryan Andersen, Spectracide Associate Brand Manager.
