The new Shepley Bulfinch website, designed by Fuego5, LLC, received a “Best in Class” award for its design, development, and implementation by the Interactive Media Awards (IMA), sponsored by the Interactive Media Council. In a format that is clear and easy to navigate, the site provides visitors with detailed information about the firm’s projects, awards, and history, as well as the design professionals and vision that are among its greatest assets.
The award recognizes that the redesigned website met and surpassed standards of excellence that comprise the web’s most professional work. Among the criteria considered by judges were the site’s design, usability, innovation in technical features, standards compliance, and content. To win a “Best in Class” award, the site had to meet strict guidelines in each area, an achievement earned by only a fraction of sites in the IMA competition each year.

The competition is sponsored by the Interactive Media Council, a nonprofit organization of leading web designers, developers, programmers, and other web-related professionals.
