Nottingham-based web design agency Strafe Creative has been named a finalist for the Drum Awards for Digital Industries, a prestigious national award that recognizes companies and individuals behind the most effective and innovative marketing.
Strafe was awarded the Best Website Design category for his work with Adventure Base, a leisure, travel and tourism company specializing in creating and delivering unforgettable mountain experiences.
Located in the creative district of Nottingham, Strafe was selected ahead of other top UK agencies, including many leading London companies.
Launched in 2006, The Drum Awards for the Digital Industries is a global competition. Each year, it attracts applications from some of the most outstanding marketing and advertising talents from around the world, whose work is judged by high profile figures from international brands, global consulting firms and independent agencies to rapid growth.
In 2021, the jury includes representatives from Unilever, The Lycra Company, TSB, Boots UK, Ketchum, Getty Images and the American Chamber of Commerce.
Ross Davies, Director and Co-Founder of Strafe Creative, said: “I am delighted that Strafe has been selected as a finalist and that we are competing alongside some of the UK’s top agencies. Our work is judged on our design capabilities and the strong results we have delivered to our client.
“We are focused on conversion-driven design, helping our customers convert more inquiries into sales. Our work with the adventure base did just that. The website we designed has helped Adventure Base convert more sales and therefore supports the growth of their business. “
Everyone at Strafe is hoping it will be a “two out of two” that night, following Open Kitchens’ success at the CSR Excellence Awards. The Strafe team worked with others in the creative and hospitality sectors at the height of the pandemic in 2020 to create Open Kitchens, an initiative that brings together restaurants and their local communities to fund, produce and deliver free meals for vulnerable people.
Ross Davies adds, “The Open Kitchens program is something that we are extremely proud to be involved in as a company. During the pandemic we were able to keep all staff and although working remotely we were open as usual. This means we were able to use our expertise to help Open Kitchens and broadly support vulnerable people and the local restaurant industry.
