Dual Silver W3 Awards for Board & Vellum’s New Website

It’s exciting when you win awards for projects with great clients! In 2018, the Board & Vellum website won dual silver W3 Awards. Cheers to a great collaboration with our friends at Board & Vellum, an architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, and branding firm in Seattle!

It’s a double rainbow! Ok, not quite. It’s a double award-winner in one color: silver.

Board & Vellum’s new website picked up two awards: a Silver W3 in the general website category of Architecture and Design, and a Silver W3 in the general marketing category of Website / Microsite.

We hold the Board & Vellum team near and dear to our hearts, and we had a great time designing and building this project. Learn more about the details of the project on its portfolio page, but also, we hope you’ll also hop on over to boardandvellum.com, to explore the site and their work in the (digital) flesh!

These two Silver W3 Awards represent the 3rd and 4th W3’s for Emerald Seven sites built leveraging our E7 Series 3 Platform.

What are the W3 Awards?

Let’s let them explain it.

“The W3 Awards honors creative excellence on the web, and recognizes the people behind award-winning sites, marketing programs, social content, mobile site/apps and online video.”

That’s right: we were competing with firms large and small, all over the world! 2018 marks the 13th year of the W3 Awards, and our entries for the B&V site were competing with over 5,000 others for the honor.

“The W3 is sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA). The AIVA is an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from ‘Who’s Who’ of acclaimed media, interactive, advertising and marketing firms. AIVA members include executives from organizations such as Fast Company, Big Spaceship, Wired, Code and Theory, Disney, Microsoft, Facebook, Tinder, MTV, Sesame Workshop, Your Majesty, and Yahoo!. For more information, and a full member roster, please visit www.aiva.org.”

“In determining winners, entries are judged based on a standard of excellence as determined by the AIVA, according to the category entered. To uphold a high standard of excellence, a category may have multiple winners, or may have no winners at all. Entries are scored on a 100-point scale by the judges. Less than 10% of all entries will be selected as Gold Winners. Other outstanding entries will be Silver Winners. Best in Show selections represent the highest mark of distinction and are also selected by the Academy based on scoring. The judges will award Best in Show honors to no more than 1% of all work entered.
