When the winners of the 2011 CMS Expo Spotlight awards were announced last week, there were very few companies in London as happy as website architects, GPMD!

GPMD were delighted to receive two awards at the highly regarded industry event, which took place in Chicago on Wednesday 4th May.

The rapidly-growing agency were firstly credited with the Best SilverStripe CMS Website award, for their efforts on the highly versatile Escape Studio’s website. http://www.escapestudios.co.uk/

Minutes later, there was more good news for GPMD, when they were announced as the winners of the Best SilverStripe CMS Designer award, in recognition of a portfolio of great websites.

The Escape Studios website is instantly impressive and has a variety of advanced features including a single sign-on system, integration with the Sales Force CRM system, geo-location capabilities and custom Google Analytics tracking.

GPMD worked on this impressive website with the Escape Studios team and partner design agency Distinguished & Co. http://www.distinguishedandco.com/

The second award, for the Best SilverStripe Designer, was judged on a collection of different websites and was fiercely competitive. GPMD’s impressive portfolio was selected as the winning entry by a panel of independent judges.

“We were really excited to receive these awards as recognition of our work with SilverStripe. We have been lucky to work with some really great clients, talented designers and a fantastic CMS which combined with our extensive knowledge and experience of working with SilverStripe has produced impressive results”.
- Mark Slocock, Managing Director, GPMD Ltd

“There were more than 60 entries from around the world for the SilverStripe CMSA Spotlight Awards, and competition was very fierce. The judging was done independently, but it's clear that GPMD consistently turns out beautifully designed sites. The award is well deserved, and we're honoured that GPMD choose to build on SilverStripe CMS".
- Kerstin Schuman, Product Marketing Manager, SilverStripe Ltd
