TBG Scores Two Horizon Interactive Awards

American Montessori Society & Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University Web Sites Take Home Honors

July 30, 2012

TBG (The Berndt Group), a Baltimore, Maryland-based full service interactive agency, has received Horizon Interactive Awards for work on the American Montessori Society and Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University websites. The Horizon Interactive Awards is a prestigious international, interactive media competition with a rich history of recognizing the best websites, video, mobile applications and online advertising.

With the launch of www.amshq.org and its new brand identity, TBG produced another great association site, for a very special client. The American Montessori Society (AMS) site is an example of best practices for a major association. Developed in the Sitecore CMS, the new site and new identity for the organization is a successful example of TBG taking an organization to the next level of sophistication and strategy.

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, 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.

John Berndt, TBG President & CEO commented, "Both of these websites were exciting projects to work on, from a standpoint of solving complex and interesting business challenges for these clients as well as the unique design opportunities the sites presented. We are thrilled that our work on the American Montessori Society and Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University sites received accolades."
