Most of our national awards have been for integrated campaigns or Effies for effectiveness, but this award recognizes for our web strategy and design abilities
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) December 04, 2012
Preston Kelly, the Iconic Ideas marketing agency in Northeast Minneapolis, announced today it has been awarded the Interactive Media Awards (IMA) Best in Class honor for its Regions Hospital website redesign.
The website competed in the Hospital category and won Best in Class with an overall score of 485 out of a possible 500. According to the IMA, “The Best in Class award is the highest honor bestowed by the Interactive Media Awards. It represents the very best in planning, execution and overall professionalism.”
In order to win this award, Preston Kelly’s site had to successfully pass through the IMA’s comprehensive judging process, achieving very high marks in multiple judging criteria including design, usability, innovation in technical features, standards, compliance and content. The IMA website notes that the Best in Class Award is “an achievement only a fraction of sites in the IMA competition earn each year.”
“Winning this IMA award is another endorsement for our integrated digital disciplines,” said agency president Chuck Kelly. “Most of our national awards have been for integrated campaigns or Effies for effectiveness, but this award recognizes PK for our web strategy and design abilities.”
Preston Kelly digital creative director Peter Tressel also noted, “Our team worked seamlessly with the internal teams at Regions and its parent company Health Partners. Great websites aren’t just a labor of love, but a collaboration of love by all three teams. I’m glad that we can toast this recognition together.”
The IMA award is a building block for Preston Kelly’s new Digital Director Tom Schooley, who joined the agency in October. Schooley held key strategy positions with Best Buy during its digital renaissance, had his own digital marketing consultancy, and most recently directed the build and launch of an e-Commerce site for Honeywell responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars in sales.
Preston Kelly has one of the region’s strongest reputations in the healthcare industry, with creation of award-winning campaigns for HealthPartners, Be the Match, Physicians Mutual, virtuwell, Medtronic, YumPower and CoOportunity Health.
