TBG Lassos WebAward

Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University Website Takes Home Award

September 29, 2012, Baltimore, MD

TBG (The Berndt Group), a Baltimore, Maryland-based full service interactive agency, has received a WebAward for work on the Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University website.

The WebAwards, now in its 16th year, is the longest running annual website award competition dedicated to naming the best websites in 96 industries while setting the standard of excellence for all website development. Each nominated site goes head-to-head with other sites in their categories. TBG earned an "Education Standard of Excellence" Award for its work on the Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University site.

One of our favorite projects that launched in the last few months, the Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University, is perhaps the definitive online museum and research tool about the life of one of the most remarkable U.S. presidents. After flying to the amazing cloudscapes of the Badlands in distant North Dakota, The TBG team were able to land this great creative opportunity and develop a site that is both aesthetically attractive and rich in content. Incorporating best practices for online museum and rich educational content, the site also serves serious research academics. The site, built in the Sitecore CMS, combines a design that allows for a broad appeal to students and families interested in American History (essentially functioning as an online museum/textbook on the subject) with powerful search and integration with multiple data sources for researchers.

Sharon Kilzer, Project Manager, Theodore Roosevelt Center, enthused, "Developing this website was uncharted territory for us, and our team learned so much in the process. I like to think that we stretched The Berndt Group, as well, presenting new challenges to be solved in creative ways. Our collaboration produced an unparalleled user experience, and we are very proud of the results!"

John Berndt, TBG President & CEO, added, "This very much was a banner project for us—we built a great research tool and created a best practices website, it was a great design opportunity, we got to work with a great client, and we had the awesome experience of visiting the Badlands and learning more about Theodore Roosevelt!"

TBG has also won a Davey, Summit International Horizon Interactive and ADDY Awards for the Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University website.
