Schiff Hardin's Web site continues to garner recognition, this time by the Interactive Media Awards (IMA) with the 'Outstanding Achievement Award.' This annual award recognizes the highest standards of excellence in Web site design and development.
The judging consisted of various criteria, including design, usability, innovation in technical features, standards compliance and content. In order to win this award level, the site had to meet strict guidelines in each area — an achievement only a fraction of sites in the IMA competition earn each quarter. Schiffhardin.com earned its highest marks for content, feature functionality and usability.
"We are very excited that Schiffhardin.com was recognized by the Interactive Media Awards as an outstanding legal Web site," said Tina Johns, Schiff Hardin's Manager of Marketing Technology. "We concentrated our efforts on improving content, functionality and usability, so it is particularly nice to receive high marks in those areas."
Schiff Hardin has earned multiple awards in 2008 including the 'Legal Standard of Excellence' WebAward from the Web Marketing Association along with being selected as one of the 'Top 50' law firms for marketing and communications by Marketing The Law Firm Magazine.
"Our Web site is the world's window to Schiff Hardin," explains David A. Milberg, Director of Marketing and Communications. "We are gratified that our cyber-visitors are getting an award-winning view when they look inside."
The Schiff Hardin Web team is lead by Tina Johns, Manager of Marketing Technology and includes Nat Panek, Marketing & Communications Web Site Writer; Meg Stuart, Web Site Specialist and Graphic Designers Kristi Fox and Wade Thrall.
