Digital Storm was crowned the winner in the Not for Profit website of the year category for our work designing and developing a website for Dorset Food & Drink.

The Wirehive 100 awards celebrate the wealth of digital talent in the South of England by putting all the best creative digital agency’s head to head across a number of different categories. All of the judging is overseen by an independent panel of distinguished digital professionals ensuring a Wirehive 100 Award is a recognised and credible benchmark of digital excellence.

Here are the judges comments: “It can be really hard for a site that is not for a high-profile cause to compete against the powerful emotive content charities typically have. But the complexity of the challenge here and the elegance with which it has been solved make a really strong case. This entry showed real intelligence to the interface and design. Engaging, easy to use and attractive. That makes it a stand-out site and one well worthy of an award.

Digital Storms’ Account Director, Lesley Simmons said, “We’re thrilled – the Not for Profit category is very important to Digital Storm. We work with a host of charity organisations such as Shelter, both Bournemouth and Poole Hospital charities, Safewise and so many more. To win this category against so many other southern agencies just goes as testament to the great work that Digital Storm provides.”

Operations Director, Damion Hazael added, “This recognition of our talent is the perfect way to end our businesses 15th anniversary celebrations

Watch us collecting our award below:

The Wirehive award ceremony held at Southamptons o2 Guildhall, was an glamorous evening with a 1920s theme. Irish stand up comedian Ed Byrne presented the award which consisted of 16 categories and then the Wirehive 100 League Table.  Overall it was a successful evening with many laughs and an achievement to be proud of. This wouldn’t have been possible without the great team that we have here at Digital Storm!
