Are you BEST in your class? Rosemont College can say Yes!

Posted on Mar 16, 2016

Rosemont College receives Summa Cum Laude recognition, a 2015 “Best In Class” win from the Interactive Media Awards (IMA) for College website.

Rosemont College’s tagline is “the power of small” but they knew the importance of thinking big when it came to the redesign of the website.  This Catholic school wanted nothing less than the holy trinity of EDU website development:  Concise Information Architecture, Award-Winning Design and a Powerful CMS.  The newly redesigned, which was created by the award winning team at Third Wave Digital, boasts a responsive design, an interactive campus map, and the Content Management System, OmniUpdate. 

The Best in Class award is the highest honor bestowed by the Interactive Media Awards, recognizing outstanding achievement in interactive design and development once a year. To receive the Best in Class award, entered websites must excel in all areas of judging criteria and represent a very high standard of planning, execution and overall professionalism. This year’s competition featured sixty-five entries and each was judged on design, content, feature functionality, usability, standards compliance and cross-browser compatibility with Rosemont Web receiving a near perfect score of 494 out of 500.

The competition is designed to elevate the standards of excellence on the Internet and offer winners a boost in marketing and exposure. In order to win this award level, sites had to successfully pass through a comprehensive judging process, achieving very high marks in each of the judging criteria - an achievement only a fraction of sites in the IMA competition earn each year.  
This is the 7th IMA “Best In Class” award that Third Wave Digital has won for higher education website design.  “We’re very pleased with the IMA’s recognition,” said Myron Bennett, Creative Director at Third Wave Digital.  “We believe it recognizes our unique ability to create rich multimedia experiences for our higher education clients.” You can visit Third Wave Digitals new campus tours website to see the breadth of our portfolio in the higher education market.
