Getting to Gold – Allen Wins 4 Gold Omni Awards with Outstanding Media and Instructional Design Practices
Allen Communication earns 4 Gold Omni Awards for a diverse range of projects across multiple industries
SALT LAKE CITY (January 3, 2014) – Allen Communication has earned four Gold Omni Awards for excellence in instructional design and media. The awards recognize engaging, empowering, and enlightening uses of media, and the four projects represented in Allen’s awards draw from several different industries and partner projects. The Gold level of distinction is achieved by less than 5% of all entries, as scored by 3 professional peer judges, so Allen’s four Gold awards with four different partners is a rare distinction.
Working with a diverse range of partners in 2013, Allen has achieved this high level of media design quality by pairing experienced, professional media design resources with instructional design strategists. Specifically, Allen has invested in hiring motion design, creative, UX design, and branding talent from top agencies in order to support its goal of sound instructional design with a higher standard of media and brand.
This emphasis on brand and media innovation is a key part of Allen’s strategy to help its partners successfully address the challenges created by rapidly advancing business technologies and increasingly sophisticated and media-savvy learners. While the four Allen solutions awarded with Gold Omnis represent different industries and populations, they share in common an emphasis on generating lasting behavior change using highly, online assets that combine traditional instructional and marketing approaches, such as motion graphic animations, interactive infographics, and social media tools.
“By incorporating rich media and performance-based instructional design principles into every program, we avoid training burnout and keep the messages fresh and engaging for our key audiences,” said Ron Zamir, CEO of Allen Communication. “We pride ourselves on using marketing-quality media design and creativity to generate lasting business impact. In fact, we see this as key theme for our partners in 2014, so we thank the Omni Awards for recognizing our strength and our partners’ investments in these areas.”
Allen has worked for many of the world’s best known companies for more than 30 years, leveraging diverse, cutting-edge technologies to provide engaging training and communication that achieves measurable business results. To view Allen’s most recent awards, visit here.
