Huawei wins a Webby!

Newism are thrilled to announce that the Huawei Mobile website we developed in partnership with ArnoldFurnace has been awarded a Webby Award in the Telecommunications category for 2012.

The site was an ExpressionEngine based project, featuring over-the-top parallax animation, and highly engaging Facebook Connect integration. The whole team at Newism had a hand in the development because of the many technologies required and the almost impossible deadline of 4 weeks! It really was an amazing effort by all involved.

About the Webby Awards

Hailed as the “Internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times, The Webby Awards is the leading international award honoring excellence on the Internet, including websites, interactive advertising & media, online film & video, and mobile & apps. The Webby Awards is presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, a 750-person judging academy whose members include Martha Stewart, Darren Aronofsky, R/GA's Chief Bob Greenberg, David Bowie, Arianna Huffington and Twitter's Biz Stone.

A big win for ExpressionEngine

The 2012 Webby Awards are particularly great for the ExpressionEngine community this year, due to several nominations and wins for EE sites. Ferver by Youthworks took out the 'Religion and Spirituality' category, and Blue State Digital was nominated in the 'Best Use of Photography' category for their United States Holocaust Memorial Museum site and took out the People's Voice Winner for the It Gets Better Project.

We’re chuffed!

A huge thank-you to our amazing partners at ArnoldFurnace who designed the UI and managed the project. It was and still is a pleasure working with them on the site. Very special thanks and much love to Cairo Walker, Ronit Ambarchi and Sandy Simsek.

There's more info about the project in our portfolio on the homepage, but for now, thanks to the Webby Awards, our besties at ArnoldFurnace and of course, Huawei.

Update: Local recognition!

We were very surprised and honoured to receive a personal letter of congratulations from our local member Sharon Grierson. It's fantastic to know that our local representatives have their fingers on the pulse of the tech community.

We hope this contributes in some way to the goals of the community by highlighting Newcastle as a viable Australian technology hub. Our friends Gordon Whitehead and Steph Hinds have been championing this aim for some time now via The Lunaticks Society of Newcastle. I encourage locals (and local members) to get involved.

Thanks Sharon!
