TBG Wins Two Davey Awards

Children’s National & TBG Websites Receive Acclaim by Davey Awards

November 30, 2015, Baltimore, MD

TBG (The Berndt Group), a prominent and growing national digital agency located in Baltimore, MD, announced that it has won two Davey Awards for its work on the Children’s National and TBG websites.

The annual international Davey Awards honors the achievements of the “Creative Davids” who derive their strengths from big ideas. TBG has been honored with multiple Davey Awards throughout the years. 

Children’s National selected TBG after an arduous RFP process. The hospital sought to develop a website that improved patient experience and physician satisfaction and updated the health system’s branding accordingly. Upon interviewing stakeholders within Children’s National, TBG recommended a Web strategy based on best practices research and creative analysis. This thorough process enabled TBG to develop and deploy the optimal Web strategy, design, and user-driven, higher usability architecture for the website that resonates for all users, especially patients and their families. TBG continues to work with Children’s National on its digital strategy to deepen integration, migrate and improve microsites, and optimize use of the Sitecore CMS platform.

The Davey win is the tenth award TBG has won for its work on the Children’s National site. Thus far, the website has also won a W3 Award, WebAward, Digital Health Award, Healthcare Advertising AwardAster AwardSummit AwardHorizon AwardADDY Award, and Omni Award.

As a Web development and design firm, TBG took its updated online presence very seriously. TBG has spent the last 24 years in the information technology sector building a national reputation as one of the best Web developers in the U.S. and making our company a great place to work. It was essential to the project that the new website demonstrate this growth and expertise. Built completely in Sitecore CMS, the fully responsive website enables personalization and customer engagement, as well as greater social media engagement. TBG also focused on enhancing its Projects/Portfolio section that details case studies on major projects. The new site also gives a better sense of TBG’s company culture—what it’s like to work here, what it’s like to work with us as a client, and what we’re like outside of the conference room. Overall, the site is a state-of-the-art example of Web development best practices. The Davey win is the seventh award TBG has won for its website. TBG’s site was also recognized with a W3 Award, WebAward, Summit Award, Horizon Award, and an Omni Award.

 “It’s a wonderful achievement to have our sites recognized. Every project that we work on brings its own unique set of challenges, and it’s always a boon for the company and our staff’s hard work, especially when websites receive multiple awards,” said CEO, John Berndt.

These recognitions go hand in hand with the many awards and recognitions TBG has received over the years, including a recent and continued recognition from the Baltimore Business Journal. Furthermore, TBG has won numerous awards for its work, including Sitecore Site of the Year, multiple ADDY® awards, and Webby honors (the “Oscars” of the Web).

About The Davey Awards

The largest and most prestigious awards competition exclusively for the "Davids" of creativity. David defeated the giant Goliath with a big idea and a little rock—the sort of thing small firms do each year. The annual International Davey Awards honors the achievements of the "Creative Davids" who derive their strength from big ideas, rather than stratospheric budgets. The Davey Awards may be for smaller organizations, but the judges have big reputations. The Davey is sanctioned and judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts, an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a "Who's Who" of acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing firms. IAVA members include executives from organizations such as Condè Nast, Michael Kors Inc., Disney, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Microsoft, HBO, Monster.com, MTV, Polo Ralph Lauren, Sotheby's Institute of Art, Victoria's Secret, Howcast and many more.
