October 4, 2010 – Recognized for Outstanding Achievement in web development for their work on the new Commonwealth Magazine and Money Management International websites, Verndale was honored with two WebAwards by the WebMarketing Association. This is no small feat considering the nominees and the criteria, which are quite lengthy. Included in the list are design, copy writing, innovation, content, interactivity, navigation, and use of technology. The full report was found here and the competition looks extremely stiff.

“The level of excellence in website development continues to increase, constantly making the Internet a very competitive place to do business,” said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. “Each year the WebAwards receives amazing entries from around the world that show impressive creativity and functionality. As the Internet evolves, so does the state of website development and winning a WebAward is a great way to demonstrate the effectiveness of your Web development efforts.”

Money Management International was helped along by Verndale and won a WebAward in the Outstanding Website in the Finacial Services catagory. A new look and feel, intuitive navigation and taxonomy structure are all incorporated to provide improved ways to explore the site and find relevant information.

Commonwealth Magazine was also assisted by Verndale, who created a fresh design that maintained brand consistency with the parent organization MassINC.

“The WebAwards received this year are a tribute to the hard work and collaboration between Verndale and our clients, Money Management International and MassINC,” said Joe Zarrett, President of Verndale. “With competition from financial industry leaders such as John Hancock, J.P. Morgan, and HSBC and magazine industry leaders such as Businessweek and Kiplinger, we are honored to be recognized by the Web Marketing Association and their esteemed judges.”
