WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - MP&A Digital & Advertising, an award-winning full-service agency, in the first half of the year has earned awards for both local and international clients.
MP&A designed the well-received new website for The Somerset on Grace Bay in Turks & Caicos. The resort website won three major awards including:
• 2017 Interactive Media Award, Best in Class Website for Travel/Tourism. Honoring outstanding achievement in website design and development, the resort website's IMA score was 489/500.
• 2017 Communicator Award of Excellence for User Experience. The Communicator Awards, sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts, is the leading international awards program recognizing big ideas in marketing and communications.
• 2016 W3 Award for User Experience. This award honors creative excellence on the web where small agencies are as likely to win as Fortune 500 companies.
The next accolade is also an international W3 Award for a local client. MP&A has received a 2016 W3 for Visual Appeal for the Governor's Land at Two Rivers website. Dedicated to sharing the lifestyle offerings of Williamsburg's only private country club community, website traffic has seen an increase of 12% in new viewer sessions since the reveal of the new site September 1, 2016.
Next is an award for eco-wellness resort Rosalie Bay Resort, 1800 miles away on Dominica, the Nature Island of the Caribbean.
