Delvinia Wins IMA Outstanding Achievement Award for Ivey HBA Site

The Richard Ivey School of Business Honors Business Administration website, designed by Delvinia, has been recognized with an Outstanding Achievement award in the 2011 Interactive Media Awards competition.

The site was honoured in the education category.

Since 2009, Delvinia has worked closely with the Richard Ivey School of Business in developing the institution’s overall online strategy and digital design, successfully launching the school’s home page and Executive Development website.

In the summer of 2010, Ivey called on Delvinia to redesign the website for the Honors Business Administration (HBA) program. The institution had two key objectives in mind: to draw attention to the unique features that set the HBA program apart and to attract applicants to the school.

The website also needed to explain the complex pathway through the program while supporting students in choosing a post-secondary institution.

To achieve Ivey’s objectives, Delvinia designed a site that is more experiential, while including program information that is easy to consume.

Through the use of testimonial videos, quotes and graphics, Delvinia was able to help Ivey better articulate its unique offerings in an engaging and persuasive manner that is also on brand from a look and feel stand point.

The site, launched in the fall of 2010, achieved the overall objective to better articulate the brand proposition and messages effectively.
