It is an honor to be celebrated for creating the best restaurant website of the year for Famous Daves, which built upon our Hungry for Fun creative expertise, said Patrick Gill, Xylem CEO. We place a high value on creating meaningful brand experiences for our clients consumers online; we are so pleased to be recognized for our work for Famous Daves as well as the DCPA and Dots.
WebAward judge comments for the Famous Daves site included: This site was by FAR one of the best combinations of art and usability that we’ve seen. The use of graphics made the site sharp, but it didn’t get in the way of speed, or ease of use. This was a best in class site, and the only thing missing here is the smell! Very targeted and brand-centric.
With Xylem we were able to create a fun, engaging, interactive and one-of-a-kind online experience, said Aric Nissen, Vice President of Marketing for Famous Daves. The Xylem team paired their signature creativity with the celebrated Famous Daves brand identity to conceptualize the site overhaul, and we are very proud of the result. Its great to receive this additional recognition from the WebAwards.
