Telly Awards Unveils New Branding

The Telly Awards has today unveiled a new visual identity, designed by Rob Trostle. Trostle developed a dynamic identity that also links the award to the idea that video can now be seen everywhere and on screens of all shapes and sizes.

With the new identity comes a new website, and for the first time ever, an editorial platform where industry leaders can share best practices, analyses, and opinions on trends and news shaping the video industry such as virtual reality (VR) and the increasing use of video by cultural institutions.

The site launched today with four editorial features from the video community. In the fall, the new website will launch a new winners gallery to serve as a showcase for the most innovative work done by past Telly Award winners.

Smartphones have revolutionized how we use and understand web design. Websites these days need to be mobile-friendly, or else there’s a risk of losing readers, or customers, or clients – whatever your website is looking to garner. There are even some households that entirely forego the use of laptop or desktop computers, since the start up price of purchasing a mobile phone and the ability to pay it off in increments every month with their cell phone bill, dwarfs in comparison to the price of a laptop or desktop computer.

Why You Need a Mobile Friendly Website More Than Ever

In fact, the use of mobile devices is so prevalent outside of laptop or desktop computers, that some homes even install a mobile repeater, because that is their only access to the internet. Homes in rural areas especially would use a GSM repeater, as it’s customary in France, etc., as in many areas the mobile phone signal is weak. The main goal of this is to make sure that their access to the internet is never disrupted – and you, too, should make sure your mobile website is always accessible, even to those who can’t access a computer.

Catering to mobile users in your web design is the way of the future. Creating a mobile website that’s user-friendly and completely accessible is almost required now that the internet is at your fingertips. People are using their mobile devices to apply for jobs, order items, browse the internet, read the news – everything that you can do on a browser, people are starting to do on their cell phones. A website that doesn’t have an accessible or user-friendly mobile website will immediately lose followership, by virtue of excluding those people who have only access to the internet happens to be their smartphone.

Though, not just useful for those who have only access to their smartphones, websites with mobile-friendly interface are perfect for people who are also always traveling, especially for business. Being able to do business on their smartphones and tablets allows people a great ease of access. A mobile-friendly website will ensure that clients, business people, or just anyone who travels and needs quick and easy access to your site will be able to do so. Everyone wins when your website completely translates between desktop and laptop browsers, and mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

User-friendly is a must when it comes to translating your website into a mobile website! You don’t want to have your website just become a squished, smaller version of web browser site. Do away with the flashy graphics and rotating pictures. Simple, user-friendly and accessible is the key here! You’ll also want to make sure that all the information that can be found on your desktop site is also available on the mobile version as well.

Smartphones are making everyone’s lives easier, with nearly instant access to all kinds of information and websites. Making sure that your website keeps up with the times is key – and making sure that it doesn’t make someone’s life harder is important, too! Do your best to make sure your mobile website does your web content, business or client justice.
