TR Press Release - PRWeb: TreeRing Wins Two Awards for Outstanding Achievement In Web Development

Redwood City, CA September 20, 2010  TreeRing Corporation, a company that creates yearbooks for the Internet generation, today announced that it has earned awards from two different web design competitions. TreeRing garnered the Education Standard of Excellence award for web development from Web Marketing Association's 2010 WebAward as well as Outstanding Achievement in Website Development by the Interactive Media Awards™ for the design and development of personalized yearbook website TreeRing.com. The honor recognizes TreeRing for surpassing the standards of excellence that comprise the web’s most professional work.
Both the IMA and WMA awards are judged on various criteria, including design, usability, innovation in technical features, standards compliance, and content by independent judges. In order to win the awards TreeRing's scores had to beat out hundreds of other sites to earn the top honors.
A judge from the Web Marketing Association had this to say about TreeRing, "Well done site that deserves more attention. I wish the site had been around in my school days."
Aaron Greco, Co-Founder and Head of Products at TreeRing, said, “We want our site to be as intuitive and accessible as possible for our users at schools across the nation. We’ve built it keeping our clients in mind – busy students, teachers, and parents who are strapped for time. The ten minutes they have between putting the kids to bed and making their lunches for the next day is precious, and need a tool that is simple and fun to use. Throughout the design process this has been a priority, and it’s nice to have our effort recognized by both the Web Marketing Association and the Interactive Media Awards’ stamps of excellence.”
