TBG Wins International Summit Creative Award for Arts Every Day Website

April 27, 2010, Baltimore, MD

TBG (The Berndt Group), a Baltimore, Maryland-based full service interactive agency, announced that it has received an award for its work on the Arts Every Day website, in the 16th Annual International Summit Creative Awards competition. The Summit Awards recognize companies in the communications industry that go beyond the expected.

TBG designed and developed a "best-of-breed" website for Arts Every Day, a nonprofit organization that strengthens learning by making arts education and cultural experiences an integral part of the education of all Baltimore City School students. The Ektron CMS platform was used to develop the website, along with in-house custom development to provide additional personalization.

Overall goals for the new site included an improved user-experience for educators, parents and art providers, delivering a clear and contemporary brand impression and value promise for Arts Every Day. Building the Programs Directory was a major component of this redesign as it gives Educators access to hundreds of programs, and puts Teaching Artists and Cultural Organizations in touch with the teaching community at large.

"We enjoyed working with Arts Every Day on their website and are pleased the Summit Awards recognized our work on the site," said John Berndt, President and CEO of TBG. "We think the site provides a solid brand and online presence for the organization and is a strong information resource for the community."

TBG has previously won Summit awards for work on websites for the Contemporary Museum, Maryland Science Center, Sofi's Crepes, Maryland Art Place, Maryland SPCA and the current Berndt Group website.
