Web development company Solid Cactus has been selected for two Davey Awards Silver Winners for two of the company’s web site designs, TeNo.com and CottageAndBungalow.com. These national honors come on the heels of state and regional recognition of Solid Cactus as a successful and rapidly growing internet design firm.
The Davey Awards is an international creative award focused exclusively on honoring outstanding creative work from the best small firms worldwide. David defeated the mighty Goliath with a big idea and a little rock. That is the sort of thing small firms do every day. The Davey Awards honors the achievement of the “Creative David’s” where strength comes from ideas, intelligence and out-of-the-box thinking, not a “Giant’s” bankroll. The Davey is judged and overseen by the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA), and underwritten by The Creative Group, the leading creative professional staffing company in the world, ADWEEK magazine, FSB (Fortune Small Business magazine) and OnRequest Images.
Solid Cactus co-founder and COO Scott Sanfilippo noted this has been a year of conspicuous honors for this young and growing company. “We were proud when we were named one of the ‘Best Places to Work In Pennsylvania’ and even prouder when co-founder Joe Palko and I were named one of the ‘Top 20 Under 40’ by the Northeast Pennsylvania Business Journal for our accomplishments in founding Solid Cactus and Neeps Inc. We believe an honor like this reflects on everyone in our organization. It proves we’re doing things right for our clients. Congratulations to everyone involved in these projects, especially Mike Hollos who designed both sites.”
The 2006 Davey Awards received over 3,500 entries from ad agencies, interactive agencies, production firms, in-house creative professionals, graphic designers, design firms, and public relations firms. Great work is about fresh ideas and exceptional execution, not the biggest budgets. The Davey levels the playing field so entrants compete with only their peers and can win the recognition they deserve.
