BURKE, a full-service marketing and creative design firm in Charlotte, NC, received a 2013 American Graphic Design Award for excellence in website design for the Domtar Cougar Paper Community website, www.cougarpaper.com. The award is sponsored by Graphic Design USA, a leading news magazine for graphic designers and other creative professionals.
The American Web Design Awards is GD USA’s annual showcase of the power of design to enhance websites and online communications. The 2013 Awards aimed to recognize the explosive growth of this area, and added new categories for apps, social media and digital publishing.
“As a marketing and design agency, our design team was thrilled to create a site that celebrates creativity and print-mediums. We are pleased to now have that work recognized by our peers in the creative community as a stand-out website in the industry,” said BURKE’s President and CEO, Jack Burke.
Over 1,200 entries were submitted for five categories of the 2013 awards. BURKE was awarded a platinum-level award in the Web Design category. The winning design will be published online in the American Web Design Awards Web Edition of Graphic Design USA, featured in a special article in Graphic Design USA magazine, and in a special e-newsletter sent to the GD USA’s creative community.
