)-- The Overland Agency, a leading West Coast branding and interactive advertising agency, has just won two international Summit Creative Awards for its custom-built client websites. Thousands of entries from 23 countries were submitted in the competition.
The Summit Creative Awards (www.summitawards.com) recognize the exceptional creative achievements of small and mid-size agencies with less than $25 million in annual revenue. Overland’s honors are:
Gold Award, Health/Lifestyle Website:
Silver Award, B2B Product Website: Merix.com
The Soloflex microsite pushes the limits of Flash technology by innovatively blending video with animation to introduce Soloflex’s home fitness to a new generation. The new site for Merix, a leading manufacturer of technologically advanced printed circuit boards, reinforces its position as a premium provider of product lifecycle solutions; the site also introduces Merix’s new presence in Asia to several industries.
“The Summit Awards are recognition of creativity that delivers to the task—that reaches the target audience effectively, clearly, and with creative panache,” said awards judge Tom Roy, Executive Director of Middle East Communication Networks. Besides these two Summit Awards, in the last six months Overland’s work has been widely recognized both at home and abroad, garnering multiple prestigious wins from the Internet Advertising Competition, Interactive Media Awards, and International Davey Awards.
“We are honored to continue receiving accolades from these distinguished organizations and their judges, who represent the world’s leading creative agencies,” said Arve Overland, CEO and Executive Creative Director of the Overland Agency. “The recognition confirms that hiring top talent and leading strategists are key in achieving success in the interactive space.”
