(New York, NY) – Furnished Quarters, the largest provider of temporary furnished apartments in New York City and Boston, today announced that the company was awarded the 2013 W3 Gold Award and the Davey Silver Award. Both honors, bestowed by the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA), were awarded for creative excellence for Furnished Quarters’ newly revamped website, launched in January 2013.
The International Academy of the Visual Arts is an invitation-only group of over 550 leading professionals from acclaimed media, marketing, advertising, and interactive firms. The W3 Awards represent a highly competitive, prestigious honor for award-winning work on the web, judged on criteria such as creativity, visual design, ease of use, functionality, navigation, and usability. There were more than 4,000 submissions for the 2013 awards and only 10% of all entries are selected as Gold Winners. The Davey Awards honor outstanding creative on the web and distinction in creative work, such as out-of-the-box thinking, fresh ideas, and exceptional execution.
Robin Spindel, Director of Marketing at Furnished Quarters, explained that the new corporate website showcases the unique, contemporary design elements of FQ’s temporary furnished apartments. “Through large imagery, slide shows, enhanced search features and embedded social plug-ins, the company’s mantra of staying different and living smart is now clear and well-branded on the web,” said Spindel. “Customers can truly understand the experience they will receive and what they can expect from reserving corporate housing through Furnished Quarters.”
“It’s a significant accomplishment to win these two prestigious awards for our recently redesigned corporate website,” said Steve Brown, CEO of Furnished Quarters. “The recognition of our creative and marketing professionals by the highly selective IAVA board is testament to the strength of our customer-focused marketing programs.”
These awards are the latest in Furnished Quarters’ growing list of industry accolades. The company’s most recent honor included winning the 2013 Cartus Commitment to Excellence Award for outstanding customer service.
