Hudson Valley, NY – Local design and public relations firm, The Niki Jones Agency, Inc., has been awarded two prestigious Communicator Awards in recognition of outstanding creative work. The agency has received a pair of Silver Awards; one for their marketing and promotion of a special event for the Hudson Valley Division of NYSCAR (New York State Association of Commercial Realtors) and another for their design of the website of the Helen Hayes Hospital (which itself has already been recognized with three other industry awards). These accolades are the latest in a series of awards the agency has won since opening its doors in 1999. The Hudson Valley Chapter of NYSCAR contacted the Niki Jones Agency in order to produce a successful marketing event to be attended by numerous professionals in the commercial real estate industry. The resulting “Dealmakers” Awards ceremony and Mixer event was created, which celebrated the highest achievements of brokers in seven counties located within the Hudson Valley. Through the use of an inbound marketing campaign which drew traffic back to their website, striking graphics, a social media campaign and strategic use of email marketing, the interest generated resulted in a resounding success. Attended by numerous members of the real estate community, the event provided an ideal opportunity to meet as well as acknowledge the achievements of their peers. Niki Jones Agency client, Helen Hayes Hospital, retained services from the Hudson Valley based agency, in order to create a clean and informative website which provides an aesthetically pleasing straightforward experience for those in need of the hospital’s services. A key challenge for the design was to incorporate visual elements to quickly provide the appropriate information to the hands of those in need. Utilizing user-friendly iconography and illustrated throughout with imagery of the hospital’s many services, potential patients are provided with immediate access to the services for which they are searching. Equally, the website achieves a harmonious engagement for the viewer while still remaining in adherence to ADA compliance standards.
