Iveco wins at the Interactive Media Awards in New York
Iveco’s Off-Road website has won the nomination for Best in Class at the Interactive Media Awards in New York. The awards are among the web’s most covered prizes. The Iveco site, dedicated to the company’s off-road range, won the top award in the Automotive class, reserved for websites with highly innovative content with an impressive 490 points out of a possible 500.
Creativity, interaction, and multimedia content are the main characteristics of the Offroad.iveco.com website, created in collaboration with DGTmedia, a well known web agency, for its elegant designs and spectacular multimedia content. In the site, Iveco vehicles are presented alongside the world’s most famous rugby team, the legendary New Zealand All Blacks, in a play on comparisons and associations highlighting the shared ability to take on any challenge and win, whatever the situation.
The project is emphasized by the claim “Built the same way”, which was specially introduced in 2007 to announce Iveco’s sponsorship of the All Blacks. Videos playing alongside 3D models and interactive tools make the site uniquely attractive in its genre.
