The Webby awards are an incredibly prestigious industry recognition of outstanding work with almost 10,000 entrants coming from 60 different countries with Cyber-Duck and OfficeCavalry.com amongst only a handful to claim a prize.
The award, an ‘Official Honouree’ title in the employment category, was for work on the OfficeCavalry.com project. The entire website, including the back end, was developed jointly by the Cyber-Duck and OfficeCavalry.com teams. The site was designed specifically to provide a new channel for freelancers to profile themselves and to engage with businesses to deliver short to medium term deadline assignments.
Andy Turner, a co-founder of OfficeCavalry.com, was thrilled, “OfficeCavalry.com was a real labour of love for my business partner and I, and to see something like this come as a result is a really positive step in our fledgling business.”
The judging panel; The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, is a diverse organization that includes members such as musician David Bowie, “The Simpsons” creator Matt Groening and founder of Virgin, Richard Branson. The panel were looking for websites that were beautiful to look at and interact with, as well as excelling in usability and functionality for the end user.
“It’s a really proud moment for us” said Danny Bluestone, MD of Cyber-duck, “We’ve won plenty of awards over the last 4 years, but this is the first Webby we’ve got our hands on; it’s a real reflection of the point Cyber-Duck has got to in the industry.”
