HubSpot, a leading inbound marketing and sales enablement platform, announced last week the Domestic Grand Prize Winners of the 2016 Impact Awards at this year's INBOUND conference in Boston, Massachusetts, and we're incredibly grateful to be selected for two (!) of the top awards for Graphic Design and Website Design.
HubSpot has more than 3,100 Agency Partners globally and Salted Stone is one of only 16 agencies worldwide that qualifies for top-tier Diamond Partner status. The Awards celebrate domestic and international agency partners that have demonstrated exceptional growth in the inbound marketing space over the past year.
Salted Stone's Managing Partner, Mike Skeehan, was on hand with our graphic design and video marketing pro, Ivan Sunguroff, to accept the awards on behalf of our entire Creative and Design team. Skeehan said,
“The caliber of our creative continues to be a key differentiator for us. Our team remains second-to-none within the HubSpot partner ecosystem. We're grateful for the recognition, and—more than this—for the people who contribute to Salted Stone's ongoing growth.”
Both of the awards were given as a result of the team's work with Med School Tutors—a place for medical students to get customized 1:1 online tutoring for the USMLE, COMLEX, admissions and residency advisement. The team at Salted Stone re-designed and built the company's new website along with producing an animated video.
Patrick Shea, Director of Partnerships at HubSpot, Inc., said,
“What sets Salted Stone apart in the Website Design finals is design and user experience. Salted Stone worked with Med School Tutors to clearly define their personas and built a site that not only functionally drives visitors to the goal, but does it in a beautiful way. Med School Tutors website received high marks across the board within Website Grader, and even with all of the visualizations and artwork still loads in under 2 seconds. Great work, Salted Stone team.”
Thank you to HubSpot for the recognition and thank you to the team at Med School Tutors for being such amazing clients to work with.
