Last night, IQ took on some of the biggest names in the industry at the 18th Annual Financial Communications Society (FCS) Portfolio Awards in New York City where we had been named finalists for our work with Allstate and Blackrock/iShares. This year’s Awards competition was stiff and included work from agencies including Publicis, R/GA and Grey NY to name a few.
IQ won the top honors in all the consumer digital categories including Gold for BlackRock/iShares -The Story of ETF Creation and Redemption and Gold for the Allstate Digital Locker in the Consumer Retail category. And just when we thought the night was over, they announced our work for Allstate as the winner of Best in Show for the Consumer Retail category! IQ walked away with a clean sweep of digital Consumer Retail categories, proving the best thinking doesn’t always come from the giant agencies.
This isn’t the first time IQ has been showcased at the FCS Portfolio Awards. Over the last few years, we’ve set the standard by winning Gold with iShares’ Exploring ETFs website, Genworth Fianancial’s 100+ website, and in 2007 took Best in Show for Wachovia’s Retirement Guide. Our most recent Best-in-Show win confirms IQ’s ability to consistently set the bar for digital marketing in financial services.
Best in Show – Consumer Retail
Gold – Consumer Retail Website
Gold – Consumer Retail Interactive
