Blue Ridge Community College website earns Gold AVA Digital Award

Blue Ridge Community College’s website, designed by AndiSites in 2020, has been recognized with a Gold Award from the AVA Digital Awards, an international creative competition honoring excellence in digital creativity, branding, and strategy.

Following a complete rebrand by Formation PR + Brand in 2019, Blue Ridge Community College enlisted the services of AndiSites for a new website design and development. The goals for the new website included improved functionality and navigation that would be easily-accessible to target audiences. AndiSites designed and developed custom WordPress templates, including templates for curriculum programs and VIP pages, making it easy to import and format content. It also designed, built, and UX-tested the college’s new site navigation, including a photo mega menu layout, a utility menu and students’ panel for quick links, and inside page calls-to-action.

“This award is a testament to the great work from AndiSites to create, design and deliver an engaging new website for the College,” said Dr. Laura Leatherwood, president of Blue Ridge Community College. “We are thankful for their partnership in creating a website that is not only engaging to prospective students but also provides easy access to the most needed information and resources. This award is well-deserved.”
