The Garrigan Lyman Group Wins WebAwards for MainVue Homes and Toyo Tires Websites

SEATTLE – The Web Marketing Association (WMA) has presented The Garrigan Lyman Group (GLG) with two WebAwards for exceptional work in web development: the 2016 Real Estate Outstanding Website Award for the MainVue Homes site and the 2016 Automobile Standard of Excellence Award for the Toyo Tires site. This is the second year in a row that GLG has won WebAwards for its groundbreaking websites.

“We are thrilled to be recognized by the Web Marketing Association for our digital work,” said GLG Cofounder and Principal Tim Garrigan. “Both websites showcase brilliant UX, gorgeous design, and high-performance technology.”

The WebAward program, established in 1997, is the longest-running annual website award competition. Its goal is to highlight the best websites across 96 industries, setting the international standard of Internet excellence, and inspiring web designers and developers to continue to push creative boundaries on the World Wide Web. This year, there were nearly 1500 entries.

Each WebAward entry is judged by a panel of industry experts who take on the role of a target user and look at design, copywriting, innovation, content, interactivity, navigation and use of technology on each site. Entries are compared against peer sites to identify the best of each category.
