Acsys Brings Home W3 Awards

SEP 26, 2007

Acsys, Inc. announced that it won a Gold and three Silver W3 awards for creative excellence on the Web. W3 is the first major web competition to be accessible to "the biggest agencies, the smallest firms, and everyone in between."

Acsys was a Gold Winner for its work on the Timex Expedition Series site, which brilliantly features Timex products that are worn by outdoor enthusiasts. Acsys designed and implemented the new Timex site—creating a bold and interactive presence consistent with the Timex Expedition brand and product features—and with site users.

Acsys won the award based on site creativity, usability, navigation, functionality, visual design, and ease of use. As a Gold Winner, The Timex Expedition Series site ranked among the top of all sites from over 2,700 entries from ad agencies, public relations firms, interactive agencies, in-house creative professionals, web designers, graphic designers and Web enthusiasts.

In addition to winning the Gold, Acsys took three Silver W3 awards for its work on other Timex sites—including the Timex Sleek site and the Timex T-Series site. The Timex Sleek site design does an exceptional job of leveraging and communicating the Timex brand and the beauty and sleek features of the Timex IRONMAN product offering. The site is highly interactive, simple, and fun to use.

For the Timex T-Series site, Acsys delivered a visually stunning design, highlighting the elegant and unique features of the Timex T-Series collection for men and women.

Acsys also won a Silver W3 award for its exceptional work on the Timex Web banner campaign.

"Acsys is honored to win these prestigious awards as judged by the W3 International Academy of Visual Arts," said Stan Valencis, Acsys President. "We take pride in making great brands like Timex resonate and connect with the consumer in the increasingly important digital channel."

The International Academy of the Visual Arts is an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a "Who's Who" of acclaimed media, interactive, advertising, and marketing firms.

"We were incredibly impressed by the quality and creativity of this year's entries. W3 winners continue to raise the bar in Web development and design, push the limits of web advertising creative and pioneer the use of Web video" said Linda Day, the director of the IAVA.
