Elmhurst Website Wins Two International Awards

October 31, 2018 | by the Office of Communications and Public Affairs

Elmhurst College’s website redesign, which launched a year ago today, has won silver awards in two international competitions: the W³ Awards and the Davey Awards.

The W³ Awards celebrate outstanding creative work across a variety of media and industries and are open to organizations of any size. Other 2018 winners include Yale University, the Washington Post and the University of Pennsylvania. The Davey Awards recognize the digital achievements of smaller agencies.

Both competitions are sponsored and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, an assembly of leading professionals from top-tier media, interactive, advertising and marketing firms.

Launched in late 2017, the College’s new website was the result of a partnership with digital marketing agency mStoner, Inc. Designed to tell the Elmhurst story in a cohesive way, the site features a refined structure, a clean and modern look, and dynamic content targeted to specific audiences.

In contrast to the traditional model of a website redesign as a one-time project, the new site is designed to evolve as future needs emerge.

We developed a new website that is not only true to our brand, but also built for the future. These two awards are a tribute to the hard work and vision of the internal web team and mStoner to create a new, dynamic web presence for the College.

The web team included Shearer; Thomas Dybsky, junior web designer; Lauren Altiery, integrated marketing coordinator; and writer Margaret Currie.
