Mitra Creative‘s team feels blessed and humbled by our win of the illustrious 2009 MarCom PLATINUM Award for our complete redesign of the Lizalde Design/RickyLizalde.com website for leading Fashion Lingerie designer — and Project Runway® Season 4 contestant — Ricky Lizalde. The MarCom PLATINUM Award is the highest distinction in the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP) competition.
Our President, Karl Joseph Ufert, says: “Winning this award is a huge and truly unexpected honor for us. I attest our achievement to the insightful, masterful hand and eye of Mitra Creative’s Creative Director and Co-Founder, Vincent Wang, who designed the site, to our marvelous collaboration with Ricky Lizalde and to the gorgeous photos of Ricky’s collection (by San Diego-based photographer Alex Slattery) that Vincent used to create the site.”
*UPDATE: We’ve learned from the MarCom Awards Committee that there were 4,800 entries in the 2009 competition. Out of those entries, approximately 15% won Platinum Awards, and less than 2% of these for Web design/development projects.
