LONDON, October 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Black Sun's work with Subsea 7 on the design, build and launch of its corporate website was honoured with a GOLD award at last night's Digital Impact Awards for 'Best use of digital in the engineering and manufacturing sector'. Success at the awards demonstrates Black Sun's excellence in digital stakeholder communications.
The Digital Impact Awards sets the industry-wide benchmark in digital communications, and have done so since 2009. Launched by Communicate magazine, the awards are the biggest European celebration of digital stakeholder engagement. Last night's ceremony, at The Brewery in London, was hosted by BBC Science correspondent, Steve Mould, and honoured the best digital work this year.
Black Sun was asked to develop, build and launch Subsea 7's corporate website, designing it to reflect their evolving business and to align multiple channels. A key priority was to provide the communications team to have much greater control of their site with less dependency on external resources.
Julie Taylor, Communications Manager, Subsea 7, said: "Black Sun has helped us create a very impressive new website; the Adobe CMS solution has transformed our ability to quickly and effectively manage the design and content in-house and we look forward to benefitting from the multi-channel capability as we develop our social media presence."
Entries were scrutinised by a panel of 30 judges whose insights allowed only the most successful projects to take home awards, setting a true standard for excellence. The process distinguished the most effective, integrated and creative campaigns for receipt of a coveted Digital Impact Award. Of the 112 shortlisted campaigns, only 33 were chosen to take home a gold award, 25 received silver and 26 nabbed a bronze.
Richard Dixon, Chief Digital Officer of Black Sun, commented, "We are incredibly pleased that our innovative digital work has been recognised by the judges at this year's Digital Impact Awards. Subsea 7's new website not only reflects its evolving global business but is also underpinned by Black Sun's industry leading technology giving real control to the Subsea 7 communications team."
