Seattle Web Company Wins Gold Award for Business Directory Website Design

We Won the 2013 AVA Gold Web Design Award!

New Business Directory Web Design Project Wins Platinum Digital Award

seattle-business-directory-website-logo.pngIn late 2012, efelle worked with Robert Pregulman, owner of Seattle DogSpot, to redesign his dog-friendly business directory website to improve branding, increase usability, and grow the business. The Seattle DogSpot website boasts the largest and most current online database of dog service providers, with over 1,200 dog-related businesses from Everett to Tacoma, and Kitsap County to the Eastside.

Through the design consultation process, efelle worked with Robert to create a highly-branded, modern, industry-specific website (complete with Robert's own loyal Labrador, Dylan, barking out Seattle DogSpot tweets on the homepage). The business directory website includes everything from a "Seattle Dogs, Spotted" image gallery, to the DogSpot blog, cleverly titled "the Latest Scoop", to a local "Dog Spots" dog-friendly directory. The business listings are powered by efelle's MemberFusion membership management platform.

In early 2013, the Seattle DogSpot website was nominated for a digital design award...check out the new website design in our web design portfolio.
