The Winners of The 2010 W3 Awards have been announced by the International Academy of the Visual Arts today. Receiving over 3,000 entries, The W3 Awards honors outstanding Websites, Web Marketing, Web Video, & Mobile Apps created by some of the best interactive agencies, designers, and creators worldwide.
Matcha Design was selected as one of the recipient for the Silver Winners this year for the web design of www.umecms.com.
“We were once again amazed by the high standard of excellence represented throughout the entries we received this year. W3 winners continue to embody what the internet is all about and continue to raise the bar in Web development and design. We are honored to have reviewed such a diverse and remarkable pool of work this year” said Linda Day, the executive director of the IAVA. “On behalf of the entire Academy, congratulations to this year’s W3 Award entrants and winners as they continue to push the limits of Web Creativity.”
“We are very excited to receive this international award,” said Chris Lo, President and Creative Director of Matcha Design. “We have invested about 4 months of development time to create umecms.com to ensure this web site withhold a high standard. We intentionally built the site without Flash so all the non-flash users, such as ipad owners can enjoy our site. In addition, we developed a mobile version for iphone and mobile users.” This is Matcha Design’s first entry for the W3 Awards and we are very pleased with the result.
