We’re excited to celebrate a recent win for Towne Properties, a Yardi and REACH by RentCafe client.

In June, it was announced that two of Towne’s redesigned property websites received Hermes Creative Gold Awards in the Electronic Media / Social Media / Interactive Media category. Both websites were built on our RentCafe platform and supported by the REACH digital marketing agency.

“Winning the Hermes Awards for our website redesigns honors the incredible work of our marketing team,” said Karen Zapkowski, marketing specialist at Towne Properties. “Having the right website technology from the start was critical. We’ve been able to build on that to create sites that reflect our brands and engage potential renters.”

What is the Hermes Creative Awards?

The Hermes Creative Awards is one of the oldest and largest creative competitions in the world. It’s sponsored by the Association of Marketing & Communication Professionals.

Each year, competition judges evaluate the creative industry’s bestpublications, branding collateral, websites and videos as well as advertising, marketing, and communication programs. Work is judged on creativity within whatever constraints apply to the brand and/or media.

The competition is open to creatives of all sizes. Winners range in size from individuals to media conglomerates and fortune 500 companies.

This year, there were more than 230,000 entries from over 125 countries.

Which of Towne Properties’ websites won Hermes awards?

Both of Towne Properties’ award-winning websites won gold Hermes Awards for website redesign. The team at Towne started with RentCafe website themes, then added vibrant branding, copy and imagery to bring each property to life.
