Horizon Award wins 2014TBG (The Berndt Group), www.berndtgroup.net, a prominent national digital agency located in Baltimore, MD, brought home several top Horizon awards for its work on nationally recognized websites. TBG won a Gold award for its work on Gallagher, Evelius & Jones LLP, a Silver Horizon Award for its work on Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation’s Southern Exposure Performing Arts of Latin America site, and two Bronze Horizon awards for its work on Mercy Medical Center and Optelian.

The annual and international Horizon Awards recognize the achievements of interactive media producers in websites, videos, online advertising, print media and mobile applications. TBG’s work was chosen amongst thousands of entries from across the globe.

TBG has worked with Gallagher, Evelius & Jones LLP for over a decade, most recently helping the law firm go through an online rebranding. TBG designed the new site to reflect the firm’s practice—focusing on the people and the core values of integrity and professional teamwork. Original photography was used throughout the site to convey the active community of clients and to generate interest in new recruitments.

When given the chance to work with Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation again, TBG jumped at the chance. It was a great design opportunity, but also fulfilled an intrinsic desire to support our local arts community. We were proud to be a part of Mid Atlantic Foundation’s mission to support artists and the arts. TBG worked with Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation to create a distinct and beautifully designed microsite for their performing arts program in Latin America. The project, entitled: Southern Exposure Performing Arts of Latin America, was designed to attract the Foundation’s target audiences and to showcase the art associated with the Southern Exposure program. The site imagery hones in on the human aspect of the art, highlighting people and motion.

TBG has also worked closely with Mercy Medical System for 18 years. TBG has helped the growing organization solve complex business problems and stay true to its roots. With the help of TBG, the medical system has gone through several redesigns and iterations to address its growth. Our most recent responsive redesign showcases Mercy’s willingness to stay on top of website trends and best practices, ensuring they meet the needs of all of their constituents.

Lastly, our work on Optelian enabled the tech company, Optelian to get the competitive edge they needed. The company provides optical networking services to cable companies, municipalities, universities and the like. The design of the site reflects the sophistication of the tech firm, highlighting optics and the use of light. We were proud to work with another high tech firm to help solve a challenging business problem.

"Each of these sites has its own unique challenges and the work was certainly fulfilling. From showing off our design chops to solving tough business problems, it’s always an added bonus that our project teams are recognized for their hard work,” said CEO, John Berndt. “Our team at TBG is supremely talented!”
