Washignton, DC (PRWEB) October 16, 2012
DC area web design firm, Blue Water Media, brought home 3 awards in the 2012 WebAward Competition for “Outstanding Achievement in Web Development”. The websites recognized were designed for The Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA), The Public Media Business Association (PMBA) and The Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP).
Blue Water Media’s redesign of the EDRA website makes it the ideal platform to engage and grow a vibrant network of design visionaries while promoting EDRA’s advances in environmental research and design. Built in the award-winning Drupal content management system, http://www.edra.org contains an interactive blog and events calendar, robust resources section, and social media integration. Aesthetically appealing and easy to use, the site embodies EDRA’s efforts to create diverse environments where people and communities thrive.
The redesigned PMBA website, http://www.pbma.org/, was recognized for advancing PMBA’s mission to establish a comprehensive digital resource for PMBA and its members. The new website features an intuitive layout, fresh creative design, extensive search functionality, the association’s first social media pages, and the award-winning Drupal content management system. Blue Water Media’s website enhancements strengthen its reputation as the “go-to” trade association serving the business needs of public media.
Mandated directly from the executive branch, The Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) career portal, https://msepjobs.militaryonesource.mil/, facilitates recruitment of military spouses as employees for vetted corporate partners. Utilizing the Drupal content management system, the new site offers enhanced user interface design and upgraded functionality; this includes a resume builder function, a comprehensive job search utility that matches job preferences, and custom e-mail alerts based on job profile information. A major advantage of the new site is that MSEP is now able to effectively track and report on the number of accepted jobs placed, promotions, and overall site performance.
Blue Water Media is honored that their work on all three websites has been recognized by the WebAward judges, and will continue to strive for excellence in all website development undertakings.
