Design firm receives an unprecedented double award, including one for their own website.
Oceanside, California. November 1, 2012 – Today the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA) surprised many in the design community by awarding One Lily, Inc. two Silver Davey Awards simultaneously. One Lily has previously garnered international attention and awards, including Davey Awards for client website designs and even for their own website – but never both at the same time until this year.
As a 2012 double-Silver Award Winner, One Lily was selected from among nearly 4,000 entries worldwide. One award was in the Shopping category for Boutique Greek and the second in the Professional Services category for redesign of their own website that showcases their services and capabilities.
The IAVA announcement recognized One Lily because they “truly represent a smart, nimble approach to creativity and embody the quick thinking, resourceful nature that make small agencies so unique” noted Linda Day, Executive Director of the IAVA. She congratulated One Lily “for sharing their amazing capabilities and talents, allowing us to once again highlight the best small firms worldwide.”
“We are honored by the recognition,” reflected One Lily President Angela Nielsen, upon news of the multiple awards. “Helping our clients succeed first has always been our approach,” stated Nielsen. “Now as I stand here alongside another winning client, it’s clear why that will always be our philosophy.”
The Davey is an international creative award focused exclusively on honoring outstanding creative work from the best small firms. The Davey Awards are so named to honor the achievement of the creative “Davids” whose strength comes from ideas, intelligence and out-of-the-box thinking, not being bankrolled by a “Goliath”.
“Great work is about fresh ideas and exceptional execution, not the biggest budgets,” reflects Nielsen. “That’s why our slogan is ‘Making Brands Bloom.’ Whether large or small, in no time they begin winning in the marketplace, which of course is the real prize.”
