RBH on top of the world after award for ‘global’ website launch

West Midland communication firm Rees Bradley Hepburn scooped gold at a prestigious awards ceremony celebrating the UK’s digital advertising talent outside the capital.

The firm was recognised at the Fresh Digital Awards in Manchester for its “Our Planet” global website for Land Rover.

RBH Engage, the digital arm of Rees Bradley Hepburn (RBH), walked away with the prize for “Freshest Green Digital Delivery”.

Rees Bradley Hepburn chairman Tim Rees said: “The standard at this year’s awards was higher than ever and just demonstrates the amount of talent there is outside London. We are therefore delighted to receive this award in light of such stiff competition”.

Fresh director Paula Kelsey said: “The judges, chaired by AKQA’s James Hilton, were all extremely impressed by the calibre of the work and the increase in entries is testament to the importance of Digital work in the communications arena.”

The objective of the Our Planet website is to communicate Land Rover’s sustainability record.

Using Microsoft Virtual Earth delivered through an iFrame, users can navigate around the globe and gain information.

Upon launch, the website helped increase traffic to the Land Rover website by 1,100 per cent in the first 24 hours after launch – and delivered over 33,000 unique visitors during the first month.

Since its launch the site has gone global with RBH developing it into four European languages – as well as Arabic.

The site was relaunched last week by RBH with enhanced features.
