One Gold and Two Silvers for Upanup at the 2013 Communicator Awards


Upanup is excited to announce that some of our recent work has been recognized with one gold and two silver Communicator Awards. The West Fraser website won gold in the Mobile Site Business category and silver in the Corporate Communications Category. The Oak Bay Municipal website won silver in the Government Websites category.

We launched the West Fraser site in March 2013 and succeeded in creating a website that upheld West Fraser’s traditional values and brand while at the same time providing clear messages to customers, potential employees and investors. As one of Canada’s largest timber companies with more than 7,000 employees, it was imperative that we made the site highly usable for the multitude of visitors to navigate to the section of the site that is relevant to their needs. The entire West Fraser website is optimized for all mobile devices as the site was developed with responsive design.

The Oak Bay site is large for a municipality as it is the result of combining multiple pre-existing sites including the district site, Oak Bay Police, Recreation Oak Bay, Emergency Oak Bay, Heritage Oak Bay and Oak Bay Fire Department. We ensured that visitors to the Oak Bay website were able to obtain the information they required quickly and easily while navigating the tools and features of a highly visual site.

The Communicator Awards is a leading international creative awards program honoring creative excellence for communication professionals. The Communicator Awards is an annual competition honoring the best in advertising, corporate communications, public relations and identity work for print, video, interactive and audio. The 2013 Communicator Awards received over 6,000 entries from ad agencies, interactive agencies, production firms, in-house creative professionals, graphic designers, design firms, and public relations firms.

We are proud to have our work recognized again by a leading industry awards program and thank our clients for their industry leading marketing and communications vision.
