DES PLAINES, IL, April 2, 2013 – Americaneagle.com today announced that the firm, along with client Danze, Inc., has been awarded the 2013 Internet Advertising Competition Award for "Best Catalog Site" for the design of the Danze site, located at www.danze.com.
The Internet Advertising Competition (IAC) Awards are produced by the Web Marketing Association to honor excellence in online advertising, recognize the individuals and organizations responsible, and showcase the best in award winning digital production. The Web Marketing Association's expert judges selected the project based on seven criteria: creativity, innovation, design, copywriting, use of medium, memorability, and impact.
Over the past decade, Danze has been creating fun and refreshing experiences each and every day. With dozens of faucet collections, fixtures, showerheads and accessories, available in a range of durable finishes, Danze continues to delight and excite on all levels of design, function, quality and experience. It’s always been Danze’s mission to help people feel better about their homes, their lives and themselves through well-designed products.
Accompanying rebranding efforts, the new site is just as energetic and playful as Danze’s unique product lines. With a bright, graphic color scheme and bold layout, the site encourages customers to browse through the extensive product catalog and find a location to buy. The product catalog features advanced navigation which allows for searching for products, and a store locator makes it easy to find a location that sells or showcases the products.
"When we at Danze decided to upgrade our site, we had two initial goals. First, we wanted to create a site that communicated our refreshed brand personality and tone, and secondly, create a best-in-class search capability - making it very intuitive and easy for consumers to connect their needs to our products and services," said Kevin McJoynt, VP Marketing, Danze, Inc. & Gerber Plumbing Fixtures. "Our partnership with Americaneagle.com did just that. We are very pleased with the branding and catalog portion of danze.com, and we are excited to engage in the next phases."
