International recognition for Rippleffect clients

The Interactive Media Awards (IMA) has ranked two websites created by Rippleffect among the best platforms of the year.

The Health Foundation website has been named ‘Best in Class’ - the highest honour available - in the IMA's Healthcare category, whilst Everyman and Playhouse has won the same accolade for Arts and Culture. The recognition was earned after impressing a judging panel consisting of marketers from global brands and respected agencies.

Judges representing Huffington Post, Samsung, Forrester Research, Net-a-Porter, Verizon and Microsoft reviewed sites from all over the world, in eight different languages. Every entry was assessed across five criteria - design, content, feature functionality, usability and standards compliance - with each carrying a maximum score of 100.

Both platforms received maximum marks for content and feature functionality, with an overall score of 492 for The Health Foundation and 486 for Everyman and Playhouse; results that make them two of the best-ranked websites of the year so far.

The Drupal-built sites were launched in 2015.
