Last night, eight Wickedwebers donned their smartest suits and classiest frocks for the Wirehive100 Awards. Arriving at Mercedes Benz World in Weybridge, we were greeted with champagne and magic tricks (all of which remain totally unexplainable despite various attempts by the Wickedweb team…). After a chance to mingle with fellow digital agencies and explore the impressive Mercedes Benz warehouse, we were ushered into the main hall where the evening’s proceedings were to take place.

Following a tasty three course meal, we were entertained by the one and only Russell Kane, who went on to perform a short (and hilarious) stand-up routine before handing out the Wirehive100 Awards.

We’re proud to announce that Wickedweb were voted 8th best digital agency in the Wirehive100 2012 League Table, a fantastic achievement in the year that we’re celebrating our 10 year anniversary.

2012 isn’t just a big year for London, it's turning out to be a big year for Wickedweb too…

We are excited to announce that Rob will be joining the specialist creative panel for The Great Idea Escape: Best Awards 2012.  This will be chaired by Alistair Ross, Head of Ideas, Draftfcb London. Rob will be asked to judge a number of important creative awards across a range of media, along with special awards for innovation, writing, art direction, and discretionary awards for best typography, illustration, photography.

The Best Awards 2012 are seeking a mix of twelve creative experts to demonstrate that the Best Awards really do honour only the Best.  Rob’s inclusion in the panel will ensure the high standards met by previous winners continue to reflect in the quality of work chosen for the Best Awards 2012.  

Rob comments: “I am thrilled to be asked to be on the judging panel, it’s a real honour. We worked with the MAA to produce the Best Awards website and so to continue our involvement with them and the awards to help select the winners is fantastic. I am really looking forward to seeing the nominations, and judging by the quality of last year’s work I think this year is going to be a real challenge singling out the winners“.

The Best Awards champion the very finest in cutting edge integrated and inspiring marketing agency work produced by the UK's top creative agency talent. Organised by the Marketing Agencies Association (MAA), there are various entry categories which reflect break-through innovation, results and creative diversity.

For the first time in the history of the awards the entry and judging processes will be handled entirely online. To accomplish this, Wickedweb were tasked with creating a dedicated awards entry site. Designed to tie in with the overall creative concept of the campaign realised by DraftFCB, the site allows users to create and manage their own account giving them the ability to submit their best work for consideration in one of the 33 categories on offer. During the judging stages of the competition, judges will be able to view and score entries online whilst the site plays host to shortlisted entries.

Stuart Wells, Managing Director of Wickedweb said: ‘We’re thrilled that we could be involved with the MAA and the Best Awards. The creative concept is really strong with real core values behind it that both agency and clients can relate to. The website itself has been created to allow almost the entire awards entry and judging process to take place digitally, in a smooth, intuitive user journey. A great collaborative piece of work between the partners involved.’

We at Wickedweb have thoroughly enjoyed working on the project, pulling out all the stops to deliver what we truly believe to be a great product. An awards entry website has massive potential to be mundane and boring but we think our solution proves that form filling can actually be quite fun!

Scott Knox, Managing Director of MAA says: ‘Wickedweb have done an outstanding job in creating an intuitive simple experience as an online application for the Best Awards, which is a very complex project.  As our first foray into online entry applications it has been both challenging and exciting and we hope everyone will find it so much more straightforward to enter.’

The deadline for submissions is fast approaching so get busy all you agency types out there!

  The WMA Award is in its 15th year – and this year’s competition saw more than 2,000 entries from 45 countries in 96 industry categories.

We entered our client Gear4 to showcase a brand led e-Commerce website with an exceptional user experience.  The judges reviewed the site against 7 criteria: design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copywriting and ease of use.  Our scoring came back as above the industry and WebAward averages, resulting in the Standard of Excellence accolade. 

Gear4 Award image

Creating awareness of Gear4’s innovative technology was fundamental and Wickedweb mirrored this in the design and functionality of the site.  The Product Showcase area is a testament to this, using Flash and Javascript (for non Flash enabled devices) for an engaging user interface.  As a result, the user can interact with Gear4’s products via the website.  The UnityRemote product is a good example of how the website achieved this.  One of the judges for this year’s competition commented “The site interaction with the UnityRemote is fabulous”. 

Congratulations to our client and to the team here at Wickedweb.  Recognition in particular is given to Kalli Daffin, Nicole Tingley, James Saunders, Billy Harvey, Steve Coventry and Rob King.

The Recommended Agency Register (RAR) was conceived to provide brand owners with a resource to find the right marketing suppliers. This can be a difficult process, and this roster provides a reliable and independent list of agencies and suppliers to enable companies to make an informed choice. Wickedweb are delighted to have made it onto this Register.

Rar - Recommended Agency Roster2

How does it work?

Working with Carynx Group, RAR have developed an algorithm to rate suppliers. This is made up of up-to-date market insights which are coupled with comprehensive ratings from clients. This gives a unique picture of the level of satisfaction that each supplier achieves, and does a lot of the due diligence 'ground work'.

Wickedweb would like to say a big thank you to our clients for participating in this process with us, and for the fabulous testimonials!

Not one but two of Wickedweb's clients are nominees in tomorrow night's CIM Marketing Excellence Awards at Grosvenor House.

Bedales School is entered in the Not for Profit category and is in fact "the only school in the country to have been singled out by the judging team of expert theorists and industry professionals as delivering marketing excellence and making an exemplary contribution to the profession."

EC Harris, the global Built Asset Consultancy has been entered into the Professional Services category for its recent Positive Outcomes integrated campaign. Wickedweb worked with EC Harris last year to create a digital variant of the PO#2 publication.  The publication is eye-catching creatively and the challenge was to translate this iconic piece into digital. You can see the final outcome here.

Good luck to Rob Reynolds and Javier Nieto of Bedales and EC Harris respectively. 

The CIM is the leading international professional marketing body, maintaining, developing and setting the marketing industry standard.
