Release Date: Mar 17, 2010
PITTSBURGH, PA (March 17, 2010) – BarkleyREI was honored with a bronze medal in the Educational Services Website/Homepage category for its redesign of the Simon Graduate School of Business website at the 2010 Service Industry Advertising Awards. The SIAA recognize creative marketing and advertising achievements in the service industry.
Launched in late 2007 and updated in 2009, Simon’s award-winning website was one of more than 1,400 entries at the seventh annual awards ceremony.
“The Simon website reflects an ongoing partnership between the Simon Graduate School of Business and BarkleyREI to keep the site fresh and, even more important, useful for its student, faculty, and corporate audiences,” said Britton Karon, project manager at BarkleyREI.
The website at simon.rochester.edu features a clean look, simple navigation scheme, and a dynamic homepage that features prominent news and events and a versatile Flash piece that showcases the school’s talent, benefits, and offerings. The entire site is also easy to update, thank to its integration with the REIgnition content management system (CMS).
“Simon has been great to work with from day one,” said Chris Cox, account supervisor at BarkleyREI. “They actively maintain their website, and they are always interested in new ways to enhance it, which makes our job more enjoyable and translates into a better finished product. We’re proud and happy that the site has been recognized with this award.”
