Leeds, London and Sydney based Epiphany won the Corporate Award at last night's Information is Beautiful Awards for its work on the UK Energy Consumption Timeline for EvoEnergy, a leading installer of solar panels for homeowners and businesses across the UK.
On picking up the award Epiphany's Creative Director Gaz Battersby said, "This is the first time that a pure search marketing agency has won a series of creative awards, and I'm extremely proud of the team's work. It's great to have recognition from a purely creative point of view, and it's testimony to the importance of creative and compelling ideas in organic search marketing strategies."
Epiphany's Creative Director Gaz Battersby and Design Creative Bryan James were chosen from a long-list of 1000 projects to win the Corporate Award at the inaugural Information is Beautiful Awards, held at the ICA in London last night.
Epiphany also won a FWA Site of the Day award for its work for EvoEnergy earlier this year.
Over 1,000 projects were entered and judged by a panel including musician and artist Brian Eno; Paola Antonelli, senior curator at the Museum of Modern Art; Maria Popova, editor of cultural curation site BrainPickings.org; and Simon Rogers, editor of The Guardian Datablog. Visitors to the IIB site were also invited to vote for the Community Award, and their votes also contributed to the final totals.
