08 August 2018
Leading Channel Island creative and digital marketing agency, Oi has won a top award at the 2018 global dotCOMM Awards. The agency won a Platinum Award in the Travel Website Category for the design and build of Aurigny.com, the website of Guernsey’s Airline.
Peter Grange, Oi Chief Executive Officer, said it was great achievement for both the agency and Aurigny to win what is one of the most prestigious awards honouring excellence in web creativity and digital communication.
‘The re-design and build of Aurigny’s website was a major, complex project involving a huge amount of user experience research, cutting-edge technology, and was over a year in the making,’ said Mr Grange.
‘This award is testament to our commitment as an agency to produce exceptionally high quality and effective work that is recognised globally.’
Malcolm Coupar, Aurigny Commercial Director, said the development of the new website was a vital project for us and its success means we now offer our customers a much better online experience.
‘I’d like to thank Oi and my own team at Aurigny for their hard work and dedication throughout the project and congratulate Oi on winning this prestigious award,’ he added.
The prestigious dotCOMM Awards is a global competition honouring excellence in web creativity and digital communication, administered by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (www.amcpros.com). The international organisation oversees awards and recognition programs and honours outstanding achievement and service to the profession.
Judges were industry professionals who looked for companies and individuals whose talent exceeded a high standard of excellence and whose work served as a benchmark for the industry. There were more than 2,000 entries from throughout the United States and many other countries. About 14 per cent of entries won Platinum, the top award, and around 15 per cent the Gold Award.
‘Being a Platinum or Gold Winner is a tremendous achievement that is symbolised by the intricately detailed platinum and gold statuettes. Again, congratulations on your achievement,’ said a dotCOMM Awards spokesperson.
