Crime Stoppers WA website wins state website award and makes the finals for the Australian Web Awards in ‘Not For Profit’ Category

Last night at Spacecubed, the Crime Stoppers WA website was announced as a finalist in the ‘Not For Profit’ category of the Australian Web Awards.

Crime Stoppers WA came to us last year looking for a new website that would allow them to;

  • balance the support role provided for WA Police whilst establishing that Crime Stoppers WA is an independent not-for-profit organisation serving the community.
  • provide a way to encourage both online reports and phone calls to help solve crimes.
  • establish their position as a not-for-profit organisation.
  • clearly explain who they are and what they do.
  • clearly explain the kind of crimes that Crime Stoppers work in preventing and solving alongside the relevant authorities.
  • define crime types and provide prevention tips.
  • provide a clear pathway to the online reporting form and explain when it should be used.
  • make reporting phone number easily accessible and educate users on when to use it.
  • increase opportunities for community to engage with Crime Stoppers as a volunteer or advocate or sponsor.
  • increase exposure for sponsors across the site.
  • ensure the site worked across all devices.
  • Ensure the brand is positioned to communicate directly with community members in Western Australia.
  • encourage action from the community by reporting suspicious activity.
  • encourage action from the community by reporting information that relates to the open cases.
  • encourage participation from kids in school years 7, 8 and 9 via the competition entry.

We freshened and updated the look, feel, content and structure with the result for the client has been a huge lift in engagement, reports and positive recognition.

As quoted by Mara from Tinderbox, one of our collaborators, “It takes a village to build a website” and for this site it couldn’t be truer. We couldn’t have delivered such an outstanding website without the collaboration of;

  • Tinderbox Creative for the Graffiti Action Challenge sub site and brand and for Crime Stoppers Week materials.
  • The Write Words for written content and advice us on photos, where relevant.
  • Fasthit for security planning, execution and ongoing monitoring.

It’s been an award-winning week for Crime Stoppers WA, as they were also presented with 5 media awards at the Crime Stoppers International conference. Awesome work!

The national web awards will be held later in the year, so stay tuned.

Our ‘Bold’ Project for Bold Park Community School wins a web award in the education category

bold_park

BPCS is an independent community school in Wembley is a school that stands out from the crowd. It really is the school you wish you went to and where children thrive. At the end of the day, when we would meet to talk through designs and content, it was clear that the kids didn’t want to leave the grounds. Instead they wanted to play in the garden tunnels and climb the trees.

By all accounts they produce well-rounded and high achieving people—teaching them how to be good humans, not just how to do math – as we experienced first hand by hosting Jacob as a work experience kid for a few months as part of his study.

Despite initial concerns that we had not done a school website, it was clear we were all on the same page and we began our digital journey – which last night culminated in the presentation of a WA Web Award, which takes us to the national finals.

Here’s some screen captures of the site:

As you can expect, it needed to be a hands on approach with real photos and content that was produced by teachers and kids. We also got to speak to parents and be part of the greater community.

Clever Starfish receives WA Web Award for Just In Time Gourmet and makes finals for the Australian Web Awards

On Wednesday night, some of the gang here strolled down from our new office in Money Street (moving in party coming soon!) to enjoy the Australian Web Awards State event. It’s a great opportunity to say hello to our peers, competitors and friends – something which is a bit of a rarity, making this night a not-to-miss event. It never fails to reaffirm the ever-increasing standard of award-winning websites in WA!

We had 6 sites up for awards including Fly By Night and My Emporium featured below, all of which we are very proud – something that we celebrated before heading to the awards.

My Emporium

It was just icing on the #LaunchCake to win an e-commerce award for Just in Time Gourmet!

Just In Time Gourmet Website

You can read all about it in our launch blog for the site, when you have a moment.

The spread of recipients was broader this year (which was great!) and included Hancock Creative, Bam Creative, Juicebox Creative, Longtail, The WA Museum, Humaan, Clarity Communications, Tom Oliver and Jesse Yuen.

Although winning an award on the night is great recognition for the work we are putting out, we still find the biggest reward is feedback from the client that the site has made the impact we planned together, which in this case included the following;

For the Just In Time Gourmet customers

  • increased efficiency for searching and finding products and hampers
  • fuss-free and error-free ordering of loose products and pre-made hampers
  • the ability to add more than one recipient address to an order
  • the ability for a customer to build their own hamper
  • all of the above to be simple, easy and intuitive on a phone, tablet or computer

For the Just In Time Gourmet team

  • easy management of orders and streamlined payment processes
  • easy syncing of products and orders with MYOB
  • flexible and fuss-free management of products, categories and product features
  • enjoyment not pain, when doing anything with the site
  • build in SEO-friendly layout with flexible and easily-editable content
