A Menomonee Falls web design and Internet solutions company has won national acclaim for innovative site design on several of its clients’ web pages.
The design team at received awards for seven web site designs from New York-based Graphic Design USA. The 2011 America Graphics Design Awards attracted more than 8,000 entries, and just 15 percent were recognized with a reward of excellence.
“We submitted 15 websites for consideration, and seven were awarded. That’s just shy of 50 percent, so we did OK in terms of the law of averages,” said Trivera owner Tom Snyder.
Here are the companies and websites that received awards:
- US Peacekeeper Products
- Strattec Security Corporation
- ZBB Energy (Menomonee Falls)
- Wayland Academy
- Jailhouse Restaurant
- Samara Jewelry Design
- Amici’s Italian Restorante
Snyder said this is the first design competition for which the company has submitted entries, but it has received awards for prior projects. He said the credit for the recent acclaim from Graphic Design USA goes to the design team that is comprised of Ian McDowell, Andy Frahm and Jennifer Jones.
Frahm and McDowell are will be listed, along with examples of the winning designs, on the Graphic Design USA website and in a full-color 300-page annual in the near future.
Snyder said this isn’t going to be the last contest they’ll enter given their recent success. He’d like to show off some of the other talents employees at his company possess.
“We’d like to also prove that our technical chops are as good or better than our design chops,” Snyder said. “We’ve developed hundreds and hundreds of websites with some robust backend stuff. We want to be known for more than our creativity alone.”
Since 1996, Trivera has helped businesses large and small leverage the tools available on the web to improve their exposure and marketing. They’ve grown to one of the Midwest’s oldest digital firms, and they operate from the fourth floor of the historic Mill Building along Main Street downtown.
