Honored with Gold and Silver Awards!

April 15, 2013 - Today, ELEKS is proud to share the news of being among the best interactive media producers from all over the world. On April 15, 2013 ELEKS’ website was recognized for excellence with GOLD in the category Business-to-Business/Corporate and with SILVER for Responsive/Mobile Design by The Horizon Interactive Awards - a leading international interactive media awards competition.

In the 11th annual international competition ELEKS competed with over 1,000 companies from over 25 countries around the world. An international panel of judges chose the winning entries that showcased the industry’s best interactive media solutions, including websites, mobile applications, print media, online advertising, video, and much more. As Mike Sauce, a Founder of the Horizon Interactive Awards, said: “The 2012 competition has, once again, raised the bar for future competitions. There really seems to be a convergence of all forms of media providing rich user experiences with a renewed focus on sound marketing and design principles that clearly communicate a message. Finally, it is also very encouraging to see all of the websites that are starting to be developed on a responsive framework. ”

Alex Skrypnyk, ELEKS’ co-founder and CEO is very proud of his team’s achievements and shares some thoughts on winning the awards.

How do you feel about your team winning in a prestigious international competition?
I am extremely happy for my team’s success. It proves again that we have grown so much and that we’ve learned to showcase our expertise at its best and go out there with our products to conquer the international market.

What do you expect from your award winning website?
The website has already met our expectations. It has proven to be the tool that brings great clients – the world-known companies who really understand the correlation between a well done website and quality software, especially considering the fact that today’s business is web-oriented. Therefore, we are very excited that our clients come to us with the requests like “do something similar for us.”

Is it easy or challenging to manage a diverse and creative team?
I get a huge satisfaction in seeing how my team is driven to do something exceptional, how they get excited from working as a team on a great idea. On the one hand it can be challenging managing a creative team; on the other hand, I mostly get the “WOW” effect from their talented work. And this website is the result of their creative thinking that turned into an outstanding product. 

When making a cool product, do new technologies always come first?
New technology is a must have for us. When someone uses a great product, they don’t see the specific technology behind it, all they care is its functionality, design and usability. However, these are areas where new technologies help us win the competition. In fact, our business is built on innovations, and for us it is critical to be always one step ahead of our competitors, otherwise, we’ll die. Therefore, our task is to transfer innovations to our clients, to help them succeed and win their markets.
