This November, we launched a newly redesigned website for The Acres, a state-of-the-art dressage training facility. We thought the final product looked fantastic – and the Communicator Awards agreed! Our responsive website won the 2016 Communicator Award for Websites in the Sports Category.
According to their site, “The Award of Excellence, our highest honor, is given to those entrants whose ability to communicate positions them as the best in the field.” With more than 6,000 entries this year, we’re pretty pleased to have made it to the top.
So what set The Acres apart from the rest? We believe it was the approach of our designer, Val, who used a video from the client as the basis for a dynamic home page. “I got inspired by what I saw in the video. The video was so elegantly done that it represented who they are, and that’s what a website is supposed to do.”
The Acres' ranch manager, Amy Ebeling, was quite pleased with the outcome.
“Counterintuity took my outdated website and with the use of imagination, beautiful photography/video, and smart streamlining information, turned it into a beautiful website that everyone loves and admires. I was very detailed and insisted on including a huge amount of information about our business, our team, and also our farm in the scope of the project. More than just the template, I wanted a feel that emulates our everyday lifestyle at The Acres, so that someone looking at the website can feel the level of passion we have for our work. Amy Kramer and her team were able to capture and display the information, but more importantly convey the feel and love we have for our sport, our horses, and the people with which we surround ourselves. I could not be happier with the result; it is a testament to Counterintuity’s hard work and professionalism.”
We’d like to thank the Communicator Awards for recognizing the talents of the Counterintuity team members who made this award possible.
This isn’t the only Award of Excellence we snagged this year – stay tuned for our next client feature.
