Spirit of Innovation award needs innovative website

One of the biggest challenges of the year - create a site that reflected the "Spirit" of the award.

The Spirit of Innovation award is a regional event that awards companies and individuals who have developed innovative ideas, products or processes. The award is split into four categories with the overall winner walking away with a cheque for £5000 and a lot of local publicity.

The brief required a site that was dynamic and innovative to be used as a marketing vehicle for the awards. A navigation system was designed based on the awards logo that follows the mouse around. Visit www.spiritofinnovation.co.uk and give the system a try.

National Glass Centre website is a "smashing" success

The National Glass Centre building itself is an inspiration of modern design with the front of the building entirely clad in glass and large glass sections on the roof over which visitors can walk. 3k design were chosen to develop the National Glass Centre website, integrating an online shop into the main website design.

The project was split into three stages; the main website redevelopment, the addition of an interactive tour and the integration of an ecommerce shopping cart solution. The National Glass Centre is one of Sunderland's main attractions and is based on the bank of the River Wear.

Statistics now show that the website is averaging 2500 visitors a month, a figure which we hope to assist the National Glass Centre with improving through a combination of e-marketing technqiues. Visit the website at www.nationalglasscentre.com
