A university website designed and programmed by FMB Advertising of Knoxville is one of only three school sites worldwide to receive a Gold W3 Award, which honors creative excellence on the web.
The more than 2,500-page website of Marymount University of Arlington, Virginia, marymount.edu, was launched in December 2014, just over six months from its initial concept meeting.
The University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business and Fordham University were the other Gold Award winners in the W3 Awards School/University category.
Websites were judged on creativity, functionality, visual design and ease of use. Judging was by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, whose members consist of media, interactive, advertising and marketing professionals from such industry giants as Disney, Microsoft, MTV Networks, Conde Nast and Wired.
“Our reward is always our client’s success,” said FMB President Jody Freeman, “but sometimes when you work hard and put your heart and soul into a project like this, it’s gratifying to be recognized by your peers.”
FMB is a marketing strategy, brand development and digital media agency serving an international client base from its headquarters on the historic 100 block of South Gay Street in downtown Knoxville.
