THE 2021, 15TH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL HERMES DIGITAL CREATIVE GOLD AWARD FOR NON-PROFIT WEBSITE GOES TO THE BMFA!
Since January 2021 when the Brownsville Museum of Fine Arts director Deyanira Ramirez decided to officially team with with the local digital marketing agency Viva Media Group.
Viva has been working with the BMFA since 2010 on different projects but nothing formal but the foundation of trust in the professional service, knowledge and expertise, and quality of their product it was finally time to give the BMFA’s online presence the TLC attention it deserved and outsourced their digital marketing and online reputation management to the top rated and recommended local professionals.
“We invite competition because Competition reveals your weaknesses, we’re proud of representing our beautiful BMFA and the efforts of our team; we’re happy and proud of our Gold Award and being a part of the team and the solution” says Viva Media Group.
With the team in place and the new design and development efforts in motion, Viva submitted the new desktop and mobile website for competition in the prestigious 15th Annual, International Hermes Creative Award digital media competition and needing to pay the entry fee with no guarantees they literally bet that their efforts and expertises could carry our museum into the winners circle.
The Brownsville Museum of Fine Art received the Hermes Golden Wings from an international creative media competition where more than 6,000 entries were submitted; the BMFA’s website is now an “international gold award winning website.
Only 20 percent of applicants received a gold award and the museum entered in the category of non-profits.
AVA Digital Awards is administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP), one of the oldest, largest, and most respected evaluators of creative work in the marketing and communication industry.
The web platform was designed & developed to support education and the fine arts in our growing community and promote the BTX downtown experience to locals and guests.
Viva Media Group worked closely with the BMFA’s Director to make sure that the under utilized city fine arts museum was represented digitally at the level it should be to complement its beautiful architecture and award winning exhibits.
“Winning this Gold Award really helps to put the museum, the Mitte Cultural District, and our beautiful city on a new international stage that shines a very bright and positive light on our community, and it’s all thanks to all of them,” Deyanira Ramirez, executive director at the museum, said on the press release.
The BMFA could could not be more proud of its award-winning team and new trophy website!
The BMFA went from having the same pixilated and skewed static html image page, full of broken links representing the non-profit very poorly since before the smart phone was invented, to an internationally award winning and fully mobile responsive content management system / e-commerce platform website that is getting a constant increase in traffic and membership purchases built for the growing demands of tomorrow.
Congratulations to our amazing BMFA Director & Board, City of Brownsville, Mittie Cultural District & Viva Media Group! Viva BMFA!
