Vero Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 24, 2011
Harbor Retirement Associates (HRA), a Vero Beach owned and operated Senior Living corporation, announced today that they received an American Web Design Award for 2011 from Graphic Design USA. The recently launched http://www.hraseniorliving.com is a step toward increasing the company’s brand awareness to both investors and families seeking senior living services.
The judges from Graphic Design USA look for well-designed websites that “attract audiences, disseminate ideas and information, generate response and promote products, services and ideas.” The number of entries received by Graphic Design USA doubled in 2011 to over 1,000, with only 100 design organizations being honored. The contest included a range of competitors from independent designers to top national advertising agencies.
Director of Strategic Branding Michael Adamson says the timing couldn’t be better. “We’re always happy to be recognized for our hard work and industry expertise. We’re fortunate to share our successes with our associates and partners.”
COO Marc Vorkapich agrees. “Michael has not only developed a strong brand for our company. He has created an exceptional online experience which represents the heart of our business philosophy. It is this understanding of the big picture that separates HRA from the competition.”
Michael kicked off his career working for several prominent advertising agencies in Seattle, Washington. Later he led the United States Tennis Associations’ creative team in developing advertising and marketing campaigns for the US Open Tennis Championships held in Flushing, New York. After six years with local advertising and design firm DHI, Michael moved to HRA, where he is currently developing the Creative Services division and building HRA’s brand.
