2016 marked a banner year for digital marketing and communications firm mStoner, Inc. with 25 awards from nine national award-granting organizations.

Notably, The University of North Carolina School of the Arts was universally praised for its visual storytelling and immersive design. Receiving an award from all nine organizations, was granted the following distinctions: 2016 Webby-finalist, CASE Circle of Excellence Awards Silver, W3 Awards Best in Show, UCDA Design Competition Gold, and more.

“People call our site ‘stunning’ and ‘beautiful,’ said Claire Machamer, chief technology officer at UNCSA. “Visual impact was one of our goals for the site and it was clearly accomplished. Social media referrals have skyrocketed because people are sharing the site; they’re proud of it.”

Most importantly, mStoner’s digital strategy and creative work drove meaningful results for clients: broader brand awareness, increased admission inquiries and applications, revamped and impactful content strategies, and elevated institutional pride.

“In the first week alone, our college admissions reps had too many prospects coming in for staff to get back to them. It’s a good problem to have,” said Mark Donahue, managing web editor at Rush University. With 2,000 new inquiry form submissions a month, the new is generating leads at 10 times the rate of the old site.

Finding ways to help clients tell their stories with clarity, confidence, and conviction is what drives mStoner’s work. “These projects are the result of those collaborations,” says mStoner’s co-founder and CEO, Voltaire Santos Miran. “We’re honored for the recognition from so many different organizations. Helping our clients to reach their goals and solve their communications challenges is our real goal … but it’s also great to win an award or 25.”
