We are elated to share our latest design awards for 2023! 

These awards are deeply meaningful to us because they recognize the time, creativity, intention, and innovation that goes into every design project. 

We immerse ourselves with these organizations. And we click our heels with joy knowing these websites help to serve their communities.

Every site is its own beautiful creation, and these awards launch them into the spotlight!

About the Awards

The Indigo Design Award celebrates exceptional artistic projects from around the globe. Projects are judged by a jury and handpicked for their innovative contributions to the digital design world. Categories include Graphic Design, Digital Design, Branding, Mobile Design, and Design for Social Change (where we won Bronze and Silver!). We’re star-struck by the jury lineup, with design leaders from Google, IBM, Duolingo, GitHub, Microsoft, Sony Bend Studio, and LEGO (just to name a few of the 50+), choosing from a slate of international submissions.

The Hermes Creative Awards is one of the oldest and largest creative competitions in the world, and winners range in size from individuals to media conglomerates and Fortune 500 companies! The list of Hermes award categories is massive and runs the gamut of marketing and web materials: brochures, ads, website landing pages, postcards, e-newsletters, corporate videos and so much more. The judging process takes about eight weeks — working eight hours a day! — to review all the work that is submitted in each competition. We’re honored to have stood out among the huge list of international entries!
