We won an ADDY Award and you’re looking at it! The Weitz Company is pleased to announce that Weitz and our web design partner Flying Hippo Web Technologies were awarded a Silver ADDY from the Des Moines Chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AFF). Weitz and Flying Hippo were presented the Silver ADDY in the Website, B-to-B HTML, Services category at an awards ceremony held Saturday, February 11, 2012 in Des Moines.
According to the AFF, headquartered in Washington, D.C., the ADDY Awards is the advertising industry’s largest and most representative competition, attracting over 50,000 entries every year in local ADDY competitions. The mission of the ADDY competition is to recognize and reward creative excellence in the art of advertising.
The AFF of Des Moines honors central Iowa’s best creative work each year and receives more than 500 entries in its local ADDY competition. Selection of the most creative entry in each category is through a scoring process in which a panel of judges evaluates all creative dimensions of every entry. A Gold ADDY is the highest recognition, a Silver ADDY is also considered outstanding.
The Weitz Company hired Flying Hippo Web Technologies, Urbandale, IA in July 2011 to redesign the existing Weitz website. In just three short months, the Weitz and Hippo team launched an entirely new look on September 28. The updated website features more about our building experience – over 1,800 project photos – and more information about the services Weitz offers our clients. Plus, we think it looks pretty snazzy too!!!
