Green Bay, WI – January 25, 2010 – Kmotion Media, a multimedia design studio and full service production company, has been honored with a prestigious Gold Award for innovative design excellence by the American Design Awards (ADA) for the kmotionmedia.com website.
The American Design Awards (ADA) is among the top internationally recognized design awards organizations, and perhaps the most popular independent awards organization globally with more than 35,000 submissions annually.
The award is given monthly to a small percentage of entries. Kmotion Media received the September 2009 award for excellence in design, which is scored according to creativity, effectiveness and practicality. 720 entries worldwide were entered and out of those only 40 were selected. Kmotion Media’s entry ranked fourth, earning a Gold Award and placing above such prestigious websites as Converse.com and Weber.com .
“We are extremely honored to be chosen for this prominent award and are very humbled to be recognized alongside some of the industry’s largest and most-prestigious digital advertising agencies,” says Susan Stauber, president of Kmotion Media. “We developed a site that we hope communicates a spirit of curiosity, creativity and quality. We wanted the site to also act as a launching pad for creative collaboration between us and our clients.”
kmotionmedia.com is a full-screen video website experience. Part art installation, part visual experiment and part creative showcase, the site takes advantage of the latest in web technology, digital video compression and design to offer an ever-changing full-screen video experience. The site currently features more than 15 random video backgrounds unique to the site – including a spoof of a 1950’s Martian movie which depicts a flying saucer over Green Bay’s classic Sky-Lit motel, a favorite video of site visitors.
In addition to a different full-screen video experience on every web page, the new site also includes access to Kmotion Media’s social and new media tools, including YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, Kmotion’s blog & RSS feed and an e-newsletter sign-up. At the heart of the site is Kmotion Media’s demo reel, featuring a brief selection of Kmotion’s high-end video, animation and digital effects.
