Allen Interactions Garners 3 Davey Awards

This recognition is a true testament to our mission of creating meaningful, memorable, and motivational learning experiences which produce strong measurable results and extraordinary performance change.

Allen Interactions, an innovative custom learning design, development, and strategic consulting firm received three Davey awards from The International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA) for excellence in interactive multimedia. This is the eighth year in a row that Allen Interactions has been presented with an IAVA Davey Award.

With nearly 4,000 entries from across the US and around the world, the Davey Awards honors the most outstanding creative work from the best small firms, agencies, and companies worldwide. Allen Interactions garnered 3 awards for their exemplary use of interactive multimedia.

Gold – Interactive Multimedia, Google Now – Graphics
Silver – Interactive Multimedia, Google Now – Training
Silver – Interactive Multimedia, University of Saudi Arabia – Training

The University of Saudi Arabia needed a better way to teach students Present Progressive verb forms: I am going, She/He is going, They are going, etc. Allen Interactions used Context, Challenge, Activity, and Feedback to create an e-learning course in which the context was students' daily life and the challenge and activity were speaking English correctly to describe what students saw around them. Colors, images, and design were chosen to complement the rich desert heritage of the students in Saudi Arabia.

“This recognition is a true testament to our mission of creating meaningful, memorable, and motivational learning experiences which produce strong measurable results and extraordinary performance change,” stated Michael Allen, CEO of Allen Interactions.

The Davey Awards honors the achievement of the small companies, where strength comes from ideas, intelligence, and out-of-the-box thinking. Great work is about fresh ideas and exceptional execution, not the biggest budgets. The Davey levels the playing field so entrants compete with only their peers and can win the recognition they deserve.

“This year’s Davey Award winners truly represent the best small firms worldwide. The work entered into this year's competition embodies a smart, tactful approach to creativity and highlights the capabilities and forward thinking mindset that makes small agencies so unique,” noted Linda Day, Executive Director of the IAVA. She added, “On behalf of the entire International Academy of Visual Arts, we applaud this year’s Davey Awards entrants and winners for their dedication and commitment to creativity. Congratulations, once again, for a job well done.”
