Gainesville, Georgia

Earlier this month, Danley Sound Labs and their marketing agency Forum Communications were recognized by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts’ 17th Annual w3 Awards. The partners earned a coveted gold w3 Award for the redesign of their website

Recognizing creative excellence on the Web and across the various platforms on the Web, the w3 Awards received over 3,000 entries from across the globe. The entries and winners this season represent the best in Websites, Marketing, Video, Mobile, Social, and Podcasts created by some of the best digital content creators across the industry.

“Our focus on Danley’s new website was to improve the user experience and simplify access to product information,” said Nick Kastner, director of brand and digital strategy at Forum Communications. “The requirements for the design were to simplify access to products and to showcase the many impressive applications and installations of Danley products.”

Forum’s process for the design focused primarily on re-categorization of product information, simplification of the site’s architecture, and full implementation of Danley’s brand.

“At Danley, the only true way to understand the clarity and quality of our products is to experience them,” said Skip Welch, head of sales and marketing for Danley Sound Labs. “Our goal for the website was to create a user experience that delivered that same level of quality.”

In addition to Forum’s work on Danley’s website, Forum Communications has assisted Danley Sound Labs in streamlining their global messaging both in words and in visuals. Those efforts are seen across the website and social media.

“We are incredibly honored to receive this award alongside our partners at Forum Communications,” said Welch. “Our partnership has led to improvement across all of our marketing channels and we look forward to continuing these efforts into the future.”
