LOUISVILLE, KY. – Dec. 9, 2010 – LEAP, a full-service digital agency based in Louisville, KY., received 15 W3 Awards on behalf of projects for clients.

LEAP received one gold award and 14 silver awards. Only the entries with a score in the top 10 percent receive a gold award.

According to the W3 Awards website, “The W3 Awards honors creative excellence on the web and recognizes the creative and marketing professionals behind award winning sites, videos and marketing programs."

“Winning a gold award for the work we did for Trinchero Family Estates is great.

It was a lot of hard work, but by the end of the project, we were able to create a corporate identity that highlights the history, culture and divisions of the company,” said Alan Gilleo, Chief Creative + Experience Officer for LEAP.

LEAP won the following awards:

Gold Award:
