“ It's an incredible honor to receive 29 Awards for our work. Everyone works so hard on these trailers, from motion graphics to writing to original art and cinematics and whatnot. So for the team to get that recognition for their hard work is fantastic and very humbling. ”
~ Gage Allen, Creative Director of Player One Trailers, United States
“ First of all thank you to my team, family and my business partner Kyle without all of these people it would make it hard to achieve what we achieve at Loveridge Digital. To win an award has been something we have all been aiming to achieve since we opened in 2017. To now be a Dual award winner we are lost for words and we can't thank everyone enough for their support and choosing to use our services! This award is truly for the team and our customers! ”
~ Josh Loveridge, Managing Director of Loveridge Digital, Ireland
“ It lends validation to our company most during sales pitches. Like when your prospect asks “what sets you apart…”. I get to say “in addition to our Emmys awards – we’ve now won five international website design awards. ”
~ Chad Arentz, Owner & Creative Director at Jump Motion Design, United States
“ Thank you! Winning meant so much to me. It is lovely receiving some recognition and it makes me feel stronger to keep going. ”
~ Clim, Creative Director at Clim Studio, Spain
“ Awards are important, insofar as they validate our work in a way that is independent of client satisfaction—the most pragmatic of validations. Winning an award in 2018 tells us that we have gone beyond the expected and created something that is worthy of wider recognition. This is very gratifying. ”
~ Lester Lim, Creative Director at Creaxis Design, Singapore
“ We could not be more thrilled to have been honored with two awards for the second year in a row. Our team has been consistently pushing the envelope and taking bigger creative risks this past year, and to be recognized by some of the greats in our industry is so rewarding. We look forward to challenging ourselves to up the ante even further for our clients and within our organization for next year’s competition. ”
~ Adam Binder, Founder at Creative Click Media, United States
“ This is huge! We love being recognized for our creativity because so often we are recognized for our science or technology but really the heart of Hypergiant is about our creative point of view on the world. ”
~ Ben Lamm, CEO of Hypergiant, United States

“ Winning a 2018 IAA award is a confirmation for our entire team that placing a great importance to interesting design, fluent and perfectly thought-out movement and showing history in an unconventional way, make sense and is appreciated by the viewers. We are very happy about it and we are planning on creating more and more projects like that! ”
~ Jacob Kurek, CEO / Executive Producer at BluBlu Studios, Poland
“ It is a great honor and a really important step for us, especially as it is a big international award. An award like this gives us an opening to new clients, and it gives our clients more confidence in our abilities during the creative process and that enables us to deliver even better work -so it’s a win for us as well as our clients. We believe that we have valuable insight in effective storytelling as well as a high artistic level in our designs, and winning these two Awards gives us a lot of confidence, and makes us make even better work in the future. ”
~ Esben Fisker, Designer & Managing Director & Co-Founder at Benny Box, Denmark
“ It's awesome this is my 2nd year in a row taking home a IAA Award. What makes it extra special to me is both times I won it was for my work in virtual reality. Years ago when VR wasn't as popular many people told me VR is only for games and would never work for video so this award proved everyone wrong and shows with a little creativity and hard work anything can happen. ”
~ Jonathan Winbush, Founder and Artist at Winbush Immersive, United States
“ We decided to go big this year, and we actually nominated 3 absolutely different projects that we are really proud of. Arkade games - is a single-brand eCommerce website that aims to present and to sell to the world a grand gaming invention - Arkade Blaster. In short, it is literally a blaster that connects to your mobile devices and its motion detectors and allows you to have a unique immersive 3D gaming experience. The product itself is so cool that we decided to go all out and came up with an interactive 3D centerpiece that is surrounded by all the traditional elements and styling of the gaming world. ”
~ Valentin Ilchuk & Michael Babenko, Zgraya Digital, Ukraine
