We are pleased to report that the Balsillie School of International Affairs (BSIA) has earned a Gold Award for its new website designed by Vibrant Content in the 2017 MarCom Awards! A Gold award means the website received a score of 80-89 (out of 100) from the judges.

Web designers on this project for Vibrant Content included Jacob Buurma, Lia Alton, Scott Towne and Jordan Pinches. This website project included a ground-up redesign and the distillation of 3,000+ pages of content on BSIA’s former website to a more manageable 250 pages on the new site.

Vibrant Content also contributed the new slogan for the internationally-focused school: “Global Change Starts Here.”

MarCom Awards is an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communication professionals. Entries come from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms, design shops, production companies and freelancers.

Since its inception in 2004, MarCom has evolved into one of the largest, most-respected international creative competitions in the world. Each year about 6,000 print and digital entries are submitted from dozens of countries. The program is administered by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP).
