We’re thrilled to announce that our continued partnership with BBC Studios has culminated in Guerrilla being presented both a Lovie Award, and People’s Choice Lovie Award at the 2018 ceremony in London. These awards come in recognition for our work on doctorwho.tv — the global brand website for Doctor Who.
An offshoot of the Webby Awards, the Lovie Awards are Europe’s premier digital awards, recognising excellence within the digital industry. The mission of the Lovie’s is to honour the most unique and resonant digital creatives across a wide span of categories and fields. Recipients range from publishing agencies, to culturally significant organisations and individual creators. The 2018 edition saw 1500 entries from 33 countries around the world, and garnered over 55,000 public votes in the people’s choice categories.
Guerrilla was recognised in the category of Television and Film for our work on the Doctor Who Global Website.
While winning awards is always a thrill, this recognition is special as it’s representative of our team’s ability to conceptualise and develop brand experiences of a global calibre.
Taking a universally recognised entertainment brand that’s been in existence for over 50 years, and reinvigorating its online presence to align with a significant series release is no mean feat. We approached the task with a focus on UX, while adapting the refreshed brand online for the newly released series.
This project marks the continued success of our partnership with BBC Studios — a client we’ve had the pleasure of working with for over 8 years. We’ve developed a range of websites in Europe and around the globe for them throughout this period, and the results have been a consistent high-point for us as an agency. Last year, our work on the BBC Earth global website garnered similar attention in the European market, being shortlisted in the 2017 Lovie Awards.
It’s a truly rewarding experience to see our strength as an agency represented in such a tangible way. While awards will never be our reason for creating, we can’t help but feel good about competing so effectively within an increasingly competitive global marketplace — it’s a testament to the unique creative flair and expertise found throughout our team. We’d like to congratulate BBC Studios on an amazing project, and thank them for their continued partnership. Be sure to check out the Doctor Who website.
