After being chosen as an Official Honoree in last month’s Webby Awards, our work for Skifta is up for yet another accolade, only this time on home turf. Shortlisted for a New Media Age Effectiveness Award for ‘Technological Innovation’, Skifta is up against some stiff competition.
So we’ll have our fingers and toes tightly crossed up until the 23rd of June, when the winners will be announced. And hopefully we’ll bring home yet another addition to the awardsÂ cabinet!
The fabulous news has reached Head Towers that our super work for Skifta (the awesome mobile media-shifting app) is up for two Webby Awards!
Skifta has been nominated from over 10,000 entries across 60 different countries for anÂ ’Experimental & Innovation in Mobile’ and ‘People’s Voice’ award. And asÂ if that’s not enough, both Skifta and Hubbub have joined the ranks of the world’s best and brightest digital projects by individually being made Official Webby Honoree Winners!
We’re all still buzzing from the excitement, but the only way we can get our mitts on the People’s Voice Award is if youÂ loveliesÂ get your vote on. Take a minute and head over to theÂ voting website and – either by signing up or logging in using Facebook or Twitter – cast your special vote on Skifta.
Voting closes April 28th and we find out the results May 3rd. Fingers & toes crossed everyone!
Our gorgeous new workspace can be found inside Moray House complete with tons of natural light, acre’s of studio space and a super new kitchen. Aside from the usual teething problems we’re now all set up after cracking open the celebratory champagne.
P.S – We’re still contactable on all the same numbers!
Last week the team here at Head threw on our party frocks and headed down to Heaven; the venue of this year’s BIMA Awards.
Despite the freezing cold, our spirits were high – nominated in 2Â categoriesÂ for our work on Hubbub we thought we were in with a good chance of winning.Â As expected the venue was heaving with us industry folk, to which we gobbled down the Iceland style posh nosh and the long wait for the bar.
Destroying the competition in our second nominated category, Retails, Services & Utilities we beatÂ off industry giants Tesco to win gold for Hubbub. A huge reward for what is a truly great story and what was an awesome project to work on. We’re super thankful that the judges over at BIMA who recognised the quality in the design and development that brought such an amazing project to life.
Mondays are never dull here at the Towers of Head London but this morning proved to be a recent best with the announcement of the 2010 BIMA Award finalists.
Alongside some exceptional nominations in this years awards, our very own work for the online local food delivery service Hubbub has been included as a finalist in the ‘Consumer Goods & Services’ and ‘Retail, Services and Utilities’ categories.
The award ceremony doesn’t hit London town until the end of November which means a few weeks of finger and toe crossing but hopefully it’ll be worth the wait and we can fend off the brilliant competition in both categories.
