Howard Marketing Services and Logos Inc Win Prestigious Webmaster Award
Howard Marketing Services and its web design partner Logos Inc were awarded a prestigious Webmaster Award in July 2007 for their design, development and hosting of the MasterCard Moments web site.
The Webmaster Award is one the fastest and hottest website awards on the net and is highly coveted by web designers and developers because of its excellence and outstanding standards for which it represents. “In the web design industry, this award is akin to being recognized at the Cannes Film Festival,” notes Alex Chan, Managing Director of Singapore-based Logos Inc.
Started in late 1996, the Webmaster Award recognizes the talents and dedication of hard-working webmasters across the globe. It has since grown into one of the most prestigious web site awards on the Internet, with thousands of documented winners to date (one site is chosen each day) and hundreds of entries submitted each and every day.
Unlike other awards on the Internet today, the Webmaster Award is not easy to win. There are strict criteria that must not only be met, but must exceed the standards that the rest of the webmasters have set. These include:
1) Unique and useful content
Websites showing unique content that is actually useful to the target audience.
2) Exceptional design and layout
Websites showing design creativity in conjunction with functional layouts.
3) Clear and simple navigation
A website that is easy to navigate and simple to understand.
“Our understanding is that MasterCard Moments is one of the very few web sites designed and developed in Asia to have won a Webmaster Award,” comments Steven Howard, President of Howard Marketing Services, which serves clients from its Singapore and Melbourne offices.
“We are proud to have received this award and to be working with a client that continues to challenge our creative talents and technical expertise,” adds Howard.
The MasterCard Moments web site (www.mastercardmoments.com) offers special programs and merchant offers for MasterCard premium card cardholders in the Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa region. It was created by Howard Marketing Services and Logos in 2006 and now serves as a focal point for MasterCard cardholder promotions in several markets.
