Ampheon UK Wins Yet Another International Website Design Award

UK website design agency Ampheon ( has won another Interactive Media Award – their third in twelve months - this time for their work on the bilingual e-commerce web site The international award is judged by leaders in web design, advertising, public relations, publishing, news and other industries from companies such as American Express, Microsoft, OgilvyOne, Cadbury’s, Deutsche Bank, Verizon and Time Warner. The judging covered the web site design, functionality, usability, standards compliance and content.

The Outstanding Achievement award was won in the E-Commerce category. Last year Ampheon scooped the Best in Class award in the same category. The IMA judges commented that the Outstanding Achievement award, like the Best in Class award, is an extremely challenging award to win and represents excellence and great accomplishment. Only a small fraction of sites in the IMA competition earn this award each year.

Malcolm Wright, Managing Director of Ampheon explained that winning another award proved the quality and competency of his team; “winning an award like this isn’t about vanity; it demonstrates to our clients that we are exceptionally skilled in delivering high-quality projects to the highest standard and externally validates our work. For our design, development and business consulting teams who undertook the project, it also serves to boost their morale knowing that an external high-calibre organisation like the IMA has judged their work to be of an exceptional standard.”

Irena Byrdina, the project commissioning manager at Ural Diamond Bourse reflected Wright’s comments; “It is a fair and well-deserved recognition of Ampheon’s talent and hard work invested in our website. And another proof that Ampheon is indeed a leader in this field, and that we had made the right choice when we had asked for their assistance in website development. I am very proud indeed of this achievement.”

Wright went on to explain that the businesses need these award schemes. He said, “Awards like the IMA bring an independent authority to the work of web design agencies. Right now, there are potentially thousands of companies that have paid large sums to build underperforming web sites which we see as money wasted. If businesses selectively choose the very best web design companies – such as those that have been proven to provide outstanding results through award schemes - this will lead to a more effective trade online, which in turn can help boost productivity and efficiency for the economy as a whole.”

Ural Diamond Bourse is a Russian company founded in 2008 that supplies gemstones to wholesalers and retailers around the world. The company has access to gemstone cutters throughout Russia allowing them to source from a full range of gemstones and sizes, colours, cuts, and clarity. The web site was developed to support their complex product model and permit immediate online quote requests and purchases.
