Counterintuity Wins PLATINUM at the 2018 National MarCom Awards

The prestigious website award was presented to the Burbank-based marketing agency for the first time. Counterintuity also won a 2018 GOLD Award from MarCom.

Amy Kramer, President; and Lee Wochner, CEO of Counterintuity are thrilled to announce that their 11-year-old marketing and strategy company has won two prestigious website design awards from MarCom:

Platinum Award  – Top Honor – for Burbank Plastic Surgery’s new website (B2C Category)

“Previously, this client’s services were nested inside another website operated at the same facility, leading to customer confusion and a reduced brand awareness. Meanwhile, the lead plastic surgeon is highly recognized locally, and repeatedly awarded ‘Best of’ awards in local voting,” Wochner said. “Counterintuity’s goal was to communicate what makes them special — from copy to design — to show the impact that world-class plastic surgery could make, and to focus attention on the immediate calls-to-action: Call, Book a Consult, or Sign Up for More Information.”

Gold Award for Pasadena Symphony’s new website (Nonprofit Category)

“With sold-out pops shows in the Los Angeles Arboretum, and critically acclaimed concerts in the Ambassador Auditorium, tickets for the Pasadena Symphony are in high demand. The previous website (which Counterintuity also designed) made ticket selling easy; this completely new website made use of next-gen HTML5 capability to further brand the Symphony’s two recognized brand ambassadors by making them ‘pop out’ via a 3D effect. The goal was to improve the customer experience — and also brand awareness and ROI for the client.”

“We always approach every website design with a dual eye – aesthetics and function,” said Kramer, who also serves as the company’s Creative Director. “A website that looks gorgeous but is impossible to navigate is almost as inadequate as an ugly site with reasonable functionality. We pride ourselves on being able to balance these two critical principles to create dynamic user experiences that sell. These awards further confirm the value of that approach.”
