Bluestorm makes Digital Awards 2015 shortlist
The talents of our digital team have been recognised by some of East Yorkshire’s leading industry experts, who have shortlisted one of our creations in The Digital Awards 2015.
An app we created for Discover NEL has been named as a finalist in the Best Mobile App category. Judges were looking for a stand-out App, showing innovation, imagination and flair. The App needed to be attractive but also useful.
Jake Ingleby, Head of Digital at Bluestorm, commented:
“Discover NEL tasked us with creating an app to act as a directory of local businesses, leisure venues, attractions, bars and restaurants, for those visiting the area for business and pleasure, and for those living and working there. It’s been a great project, as we’ve been able to utilise emerging digital technologies to support the economic and tourism strategy in the region. We were delighted to discover that the app has been shortlisted in The Digital Awards and we are looking forward to the event later this month.”
Hull and East Yorkshire is a hive of digital activity, with superfast broadband, entrepreneurial investment and online commerce expanding more rapidly than ever before.
With 11 categories covering everything from Best Hardware to Best Digital Marketing Campaign, The Digital Awards celebrate creative and forward-thinking applications of cutting edge technology, bringing the digital community together for an inspiring first-of-its-kind event in our region. The awards reflect the wide scope of skills being employed in the region, whether that be technological development or digital delivery.
The Digital Awards 2015 will be held on the third floor of the newly opened C4DI, a perfectly suited environment with spectacular views over the city’s growing digital and cultural quarter. The winners will be revealed at a glittering awards ceremony on 22nd October – wish us luck!
