Haneke Design announced today its recognition as an Official Honoree in two categories of the 18th Annual Webby Awards competition. Hailed as the “Internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times, The Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet. Haneke Design’s Tie the Knot responsive web site and mobile application, created for client Two Coast Ventures, was recognized as an Official Honoree for Best Mobile & Apps – Events (Handheld Devices), one of only eleven selected for the category worldwide. PrayerBowls.com, a responsive e-commerce site built last year for Tampa entrepreneurs Tom and Karen Berry, was one of only five international Official Honorees named in the General Websites: Religion and Spirituality category.
“We are excited, humbled, and truly happy to have the IADAS recognize our team and our clients with these two Webby honors,” said Jody Haneke, president of Haneke Design, a leading interactive design and development firm focused on delivering user-centered solutions for desktop, mobile and tablet devices. “The visionary entrepreneurs behind PrayerBowls and Tie the Knot are all located here in Tampa. It’s a privilege for us to collaborate with such talented people in this community and share in their international acclaim.”
The 18th Annual Webby Awards received entries from all 50 US states and over 60 countries worldwide. The honorees were selected for recognition based on excellence in website and mobile content, structure and navigation, visual design, functionality, interactivity and overall experience.
“Honorees like Haneke Design are setting the standard for innovation and creativity on the Internet,” said David-Michel Davies, Executive Director of The Webby Awards. “It is an incredible achievement to be selected among the best from the 12,000 entries we received this year.”
