LEAP Wins Big at Louie Awards

by: lfi in News

LEAP came up big in the Advertising Federation of Louisville's ADDY Award competition. Nicknamed the "Louie's", this is an annual event where advertising organizations throughout the city compete for recognition of their work.

LEAP took home The Judges Award for Interactive Media for their design and development of the Louisville Orchestra website.

"This is one of the major awards given out by the Advertising Federation of Louisville," said VP of Marketing for LEAP Interactive Bill Bright. "We knew we had submitted a great website, from an outstanding client, we just didn't know how the judges would see it. I could hardly stand when they told us we won."

"It is a real testament to our team," said LEAP President and CEO, Dan Knapp. "Awards are only given out based on accomplishments not potential. Our team came together with creative ideas, manicured applications and unparalleled dedication. They deserved this recognition."

Alan Gilleo, VP of operations for LEAP and creative director for the Louisville Orchestra website, said, "It was our goal this year to win a Louie this year. And we have done that. The award hasn't been off my desk since it was presented to us. I can't express how proud I am of our company and the hard work our team puts in everyday."

"I was stunned," said Tim King, executive director of the Louisville Orchestra. "Going in to this project, we told LEAP we wanted a site that would set the standard for not only orchestras throughout the country, but for art communities around the country. They have certainly reached that goal."

LEAP also won awards in the Interactive Media category for business-to-business websites.
