Close on the heels of 5 ADDY awards received at the American Advertising Awards, DMI has been bestowed with another accolade. We have been named as an Official Honoree for our work on the Art Basel mobile app and website in the 20th Annual Webby Awards.
About the Winning Work
The mobile app and website for Art Basel have been created primarily for art aficionados. They package meaningful information about the three international art fairs organized by Art Basel in Basel, Miami and Hong Kong. This includes live news and updates, a list of artworks on display, details of galleries and their artists and interactive maps of the shows. The information is combined with useful functionalities like saving favorite art works, making notes on each and sharing options on social channels. DMI worked with Art Basel on the planning and ideation, UX/UI design, development, quality assurance and user testing, as well as measurement and enhancement of the services. The app is available on both Android and iOS devices while the Art Basel website can be found here.
We have now been named Official Honoree for three years in a row, following the awards for our work on the NFL Players Association and National Cable & Telecommunications Associations (NCTA) websites in 2015 and 2014 respectively.
