We're proud to announce that Mediacurrent has earned an AVA Digital Award for our design work in partnership with Emory University’s Goizueta Business School. The recently launched Drupal 8 site was recognized by AVA Digital, an awards program that recognizes outstanding achievements by creative professionals. The judging process is run by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals, an international organization of creative professionals who look for projects that exceed a high standard of excellence and works that can act as a benchmark for industries.

“This award is a testament of Mediacurrent’s ingenuity and design and UX methodology. Our design, strategy, and development teams have incredible talent, and we’re grateful and humbled to have our work distinguished from a competitive applicant pool of 2,500 entries from across the globe.”

- Dave Terry

The design team for Emory University Goizueta Business School studied and explored the university, its culture, and brand, actively listening and seeking to create design elements that spoke to what we heard.
