Minneapolis February 2, 2017 — MVP Marketing + Design, a nationally recognized digital marketing and communications firm, is pleased to announce that it has again been honored at the 2016 Davey Awards for its website creativity on behalf of Mason Wells, a leading Midwest private equity firm, and PB Crave, a fast growing all-natural peanut butter brand. Both sites won prestigious Silver Awards.
MVP’s professional services website for Milwaukee-based Mason Wells is notable for reinforcing the client’s image and value proposition to the greater Midwest private equity and investment banking community, including business owners and intermediaries. Leveraging the premise of “Private Equity. Midwest Integrity,” MVP upgraded the firm’s brand and communications on and off the web.
The site features such form and functional improvements as interlinked home-to-sub-page business sector pages, icon-illustrated case studies, a friendly and approachable team section including print-page functionality, and a multivariable portfolio section filterable by sector, fund and current/former status.
In contrast, MVP’s e-Commerce food website for PB Crave, an up and coming natural peanut butter brand, features a self-service online store and an easy-to-use retail store locator to help shoppers find their closest Razzle Dazzle or Cookie Nookie retailer. And to delight peanut butter craving moms and their school-age kids, not to mention college students, a filterable recipes section invites users to make personal social media connections with the site and brand. The site also touts the company’s cause-related marketing commitment to Africa-based Project Peanut Butter, which promotes sustainable farming best practices.
Dick Weinrib, MVP’s president and CEO stated “We’re especially pleased to have won recognition in both the professional services and the food and beverage categories. One rarely sees digital agencies like MVP having expertise in both B2B and B2C. I’m very proud of our web design team for their exceptional versatility and creativity, which was recognized by the awards committee.”
