Slurpy are pleased and proud to announce today that we have received an award from the American Design Awards for the design of its Retro Tuckshop website. Our entry was among 25 sites chosen from a pool of over 2,000 entries.
This award is a great tribute to our hard work, dedication and creativity, especially since it comes from fellow design professionals at American Design Awards. This concludes a wonderful year for Slurpy, after our Music Video ‘The Best Day We Ever Had‘ toured the world’s animation festivals, and our multi award winning short film ‘Death by Scrabble‘ continued to garner praise and recognition.
We would also like to give our thanks to Kate Henning, the owner of the website for giving us so much freedom with the design, (and also for the large quantities of sweets which she gave us as a thank you present – my dentist may not appreciate them, but I certainly did!). Retro Tuckshop is a great business, and the perfect place to order your sherbet fountains, fizzy whips and aniseed balls. We’re very happy to have been able to give Kate a great design and vastly improved visitor numbers through our search engine optimization work.
The American Design Awards looks at and grades hundreds of web design entries each month in their Monthly Design Contest. Grading is based on creativity (40 points), effectiveness (30 points), and practicality (30 points), for a total of 100 points. Slurpy scored a total of 73 points, winning ourselves a very shiny glass plaque.
