BrainSpark Media Wins 2008 WebAward

Denver, CO, September 25, 2008 --( The Web Marketing Association has awarded BrainSpark Media, a Denver-based interactive agency, the Technology Standard of Excellence Award for the GeoEye, Inc. corporate Web site. The winners of the 2008 WebAwards competition recognize the individual achievement behind the creation of today's top Web sites. More than 2,400 sites from 45 countries were adjudicated in 96 industry categories during this year's competition.

“As a client, we knew going into this project that we’d need to find a Web design firm that could help us demonstrate the coolness of our technologies,” says Deke Young, GeoEye director of business systems. “As a commercial satellite imagery company we’re lucky to have a visual product, and BrainSpark helped us organize, focus and deliver our messaging in the most impactful way.”

"Winning this award is an honor we're proud to share with our client, GeoEye," says George Gastis, president, BrainSpark Media. "The project was a significant collaborative effort that included 15 + immediate project team members and spanned nearly a year in duration from start to finish. We're all very pleased with the end-product and it is fitting that we've achieved this recognition given the level of effort and time invested to execute the project as planned."

The GeoEye Web site project consisted of three primary phases; 1) strategy and visual design, 2) information architecture, copywriting and content development, and 3) site construction, application development and usability testing. The project team first conducted extensive research that included surveying dozens of internal and external GeoEye stakeholders, reviewing industry and market research and analyzing historical site traffic. The results and findings provided the strategic foundation for all project phases that followed, with the ultimate goal of designing the new site to better serve the needs of GeoEye's target audiences; customers, employees, investors, media and the general public.
