On November 30th, a handful of Liipers attended to “ Le Meilleur du Web 2011” award night.
Similar to the “Best of Swiss Web” (BOSW), that takes place in Zurich every year, this award is the first of its kind in Suisse Romande. Born of a joint effort from Victoria Marchand, Thierry Weber and Rodolphe Koller, this first edition had also been prepared in collaboration with the organizers of the BOSW, which probably brought their share of experience. The goal of the event was to give some more visibility to web agencies in Romandie.
The event was well organized and the mood was good, about 200 people joined the ceremony and the Liip team were the only ones to bring with them “virtual team members” (aka Liipers Benoît and Sylvain).
Basically, the whole Romand web scene was there with all the big agencies, but also small ones never heard of before. They were a bit less than 40 different projects in total. Some of them where submitted in distinct categories, which brought the number of total submissions to about 50 (pretty good for a first edition!).
Here are the awards results :
- – Creation and ergonomics : Antistatique.net with Uchitomi
- – Digital Campaigns : Vanksen agency with L'Oréal Paris Suisse
- – Business & Marketing : Lombard Odier with E-Merging
- – Technology and Innovation : Virtua with Status Hopper
On its side, Liip won a distinction in the “Technology and Innovation” category (only category with a special distinction) with the “ Football for All” project (basically http://m.uefa.com & http://ac.uefa.com) for the exceptional tech complexity management.
This is an fantastic result for Liip Lausanne, after 8 months of the office creation. I wanted to thank warmly all the Lausanne staff, but also the UEFA and of course :ratio, our UX partner in this project, who all made this distinction possible!
