While we were unfortunate not to pick up awards for three of our clients, we were very pleased to have been shortlisted with them and delighted to have our work with Sipario recognised with the first–place prize.
Sipario is a B2B engagement platform for venues and classical music artist managers, which uses a sophisticated matching and booking system. Fathom worked alongside Sipario to take the platform from an initial user–centred MVP brief through to a working prototype with high–fidelity wireframes, testing the site rigorously before handing over to the development partner (Zesty) and providing ongoing advice on how to best implement the designs.
The winners were announced at a black–tie gala awards ceremony held at the Ballsbridge Hotel in Dublin. The dinner was attended by 170 guests from companies across Ireland that specialise in UX or that have invested in user–centred design. We would like to congratulate all the finalists who attended on the night, especially Annertech (with client Bóthar) and Fat Fish Marketing (with client Finca Skin Organics) who took home the awards in our other two categories.
Special thanks go to organisers Business River – we had a very enjoyable night and look forward to next year’s event.
