Two Sterling Sites Win Silver W3 Awards for Investment Banking and Healthcare Website Design

By MVP Marketing + Design | October 26, 2020

Minneapolis, October 26, 2020 – MVP Marketing + Design, Inc., a Minneapolis Digital Agency, is thrilled to announce the win of two W3 Silver Awards recognizing its prowess in Private Equity and Healthcare (Medical Device) website design. These latest honors supplement an avalanche of earlier 2020 website design awards honoring MVP’s hard won creativity and innovative development efforts. The awards include:


W3 Silver Award for Clearsight Advisors (Washington, DC)

In the Professional Services category the beautifully crafted website for “world class” Investment Bank Clearsight Advisors, Washington, DC, offers visitors an immediate glimpse of the M&A firm’s knowledge-based culture, client successes, tech-savvy capabilities and more.

The distinctively designed website, which was based on a combination of MVP verbal and visual branding, as well as a newly MVP-redesigned logo, kicks-off with a high-energy home page video featuring office highlights, including a jaw dropping conference room back-flip performed by one of the firm’s more daring vice presidents.

Brand engagement and user experience (UX) are further enhanced through a unique animated arrow guiding visitors down the home page to a series of SEO-optimized content areas and CTAs, including perspectives, team, testimonials, news and a CRM-linked newsletter sign-up.

The site also features a novel approach to linking the firm’s industry focus with its transactional experience to communicate that Clearsight not only says what it does but does what it says. Thanks to MVP’s tenured website design and development team, the extensive and content-rich site loads in less than a second, performs flawlessly on cell phones and tablets, and is easily administered through MVP’s customized WordPress content management system, which is more intuitive and requires less training time than most other “out-of-the-box” SaaS- or CMS-based WordPress and .NET solutions.

W3 Silver Award for NAMSA (Minneapolis and Toledo)

MVP also won award recognition through a highly educationally-oriented medical professional site for NAMSA, the world’s only 100% Medical Device-focused CRO offering global end-to-end development solutions. Communicating cohesive branding was vital to NAMSA so MVP bathed the entire site in shades of healthcare-inspired blue. From its healing-focused MVP-edited homepage video to custom-designed and clickable icons, visitors are motivated to visit such key content areas as services, resources and events. A dynamic duo of visual branding and business process functionality, including the MVP developed 1,000+ FDA medical device test navigator, the NAMSA healthcare website shines as a sterling example of MVP’s combination of award-wining creativity and “most valuable partner” commitment to client success.
