Velir Wins Three 2022 AVA Digital Awards
Velir is proud to share that we have won three 2022 AVA Digital Awards for Drupal websites we created with our clients. Our work with Museum of Science, Boston won two Platinum Awards, and our collaboration with the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) won a Gold Award.
We received a Platinum Award for Web-Based Production in the Social Responsibility category and a Platinum Award for Web-Based Production in the Nonprofit category for the Project Vaccine microsite we designed for Museum of Science, Boston. The site, which was created with Drupal 7, acts as a digital extension of the Museum’s physical exhibit on the science behind vaccine development. Collaborating with the Museum, we crafted an engaging online exhibit, which allows its teams the flexibility to author bilingual content in Drupal. It also lets them easily make comprehensive updates to the site as new information about vaccines emerges.
The revolutionary redesign we did of NBER’s website received a Gold Award for Web-Based Production in the Nonprofit category. We helped NBER design a more accessible site on Drupal 9 where its audiences can easily locate and leverage its decades of research. As part of our process, we also ensured that the site’s modern editorial design could rely less on imagery to deliver information. We did that by working with NBER to establish a scalable, on-brand typeface and type hierarchy, and to craft a style guide that trains content authors on how to use available typographical resources.
"We’re honored to be recognized with three AVA Digital Awards for the exciting work we’ve done for NBER and Museum of Science, Boston. We’re extremely proud of these collaborations with our clients, and of the important impact these websites are making for their audiences."
