It's awards season for the web community and OHO is kicking things off with some exciting news: for our work on nonprofit organization Root Capital's website refresh, we've been named a finalist for the 2012 MITX Interactive Awards in the Nonprofits & Government category!
The nominated site, which was custom developed on the Drupal content management system by OHO, was done in collaboration with a design and communications team at Root Capital, a Cambridge-based social investment fund specializing in growing rural prosperity in poor, environmentally vulnerable parts of Africa and Latin America by lending capital. As a site we're greatly proud of, not simply because of the bold design and robust set of features to be found on it but because of the worthy mission it supports as well, the recent news of the site being named a finalist for this year's MITX awards comes as a great honor.
The Interactive Awards, presented by the Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange, is a competition held annually to recognize the best web design agencies, firms, organizations, and groups in Boston and throughout Massachusetts for the amazing work they do. You can read about the organization, the Interactive Awards, and OHO's place among the other 2012 finalists in MITX's finalist announcement on BusinessWire.
You can be sure we'll be at the awards ceremony on November 20th (because, honestly what's tackier than an award winner that doesn't show up?), but leading up to the big night keep your fingers crossed for OHO, Root Capital, and the new Root Capital site!
