Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 15, 2014
mStoner, Inc., a marketing communications agency focusing on higher education branding, and web strategy and development, was awarded Best in Class by the Interactive Media Awards™ for designing the Brown University Sestercentennial website, the American University of Paris website, and the website for SUNY.edu. mStoner received a near-perfect score for the design and development of Brown's site, scoring 491 points out of 500. mStoner was also awarded Outstanding Achievement in Website Development for its work on the George School Fit for the Future Campaign website and the Nevada State College website. The honors recognize that the projects met and surpassed the standards of excellence that comprise the web’s most professional work. These sites were honored specifically for excellence in Education.
The judging consisted of various criteria, including design, usability, innovation in technical features, standards compliance and content. In order to win at this award level, the sites had to meet strict guidelines in each area — an achievement only a fraction of sites in the IMA competition earn each quarter.

And because we believe that the best solutions are those that we develop together, these awards also recognize the hard work of our clients, with whom we partnered on these projects.
