Gold and silver wins for St Ives agency at digital awards


The online achievements of a St Ives digital agency have been celebrated at this year’s Cambridgeshire Digital Awards.

BAO Agency, based in Crown Street, stood head and shoulders above the rest to walk away with two golds and one silver, including the most prestigious award of the night.

The company, which was nominated for six awards, was handed the top accolade of best website. The judges were impressed that the agency’s platform “incorporated striking imagery” along with “strong content and some of the most innovative design elements”.

Also on the night, the firm took silver in the marketing and creative website category.

On top of this, the firm was selected as winners of the small business website, presented by Connecting Cambridgeshire, for its production of the women’s fashion platform The Cult and Classic.

Joe Trippett, founder, said: “We were not expecting to win anything on the night so to get three awards is hugely flattering and testament to the hard work our team put into each and every project.”

All gold-winning websites are now entered into a champions’ event, which puts all contenders from the eight regions against each other in a public vote.
